Woman caught on video taking selfies inches away from full-grown bison: ‘Natural selection in action’

A woman who was visiting Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming was caught on video doing something incredibly stupid right next to a full-grown bison.

Despite warnings from park officials not to approach bison or other wildlife, the woman can be seen standing just inches away from the animal while seemingly taking selfies.

Experts speaking to ABC7 say she could have easily been gored or trampled, which then would have resulted in the animal being euthanized.

Unsurprisingly, people had opinions about the women’s actions after the video was posted to social media.

“Natural selection,” one person wrote.

“FIXING HER BANGS. She’s literally lucky to be alive,” a commenter wrote.

“Incredible stupidity in so many ways,” wrote another. “She checks her hair! My God, what is wrong with these people?”
