Morons.

Stepping off the boardwalk isn't such a bright idea, either...

"The most recent thermal fatality occurred in 2000. One moonless August night, 20-year-old Sara Hulphers, a park concession employee from Oroville, Washington, went swimming with friends in the Firehole River. Accompanied by two co-workers for Old Faithful businesses, Hulphers returned by hiking through Lower Geyser Basin. They carried no flashlights, and the three thought they were jumping a small stream when they fell into Cavern Spring's ten-foot-deep boiling waters. Hulphers went completely underwater and died several hours later from third-degree burns that covered her entire body. Her companions survived, but the two men spent months in a Salt Lake City hospital recovering from severe burns over most of their bodies."

Even at the end of the video, the adult chaperone seems to have no appreciation for the danger of the situation. He's laughing.

That one kid was chased and almost killed by a bull, and people are laughing.

"Following his parents along a boardwalk in the Old Faithful area in 1970, nine-year-old Andy Hecht from Williamsville, New York, tripped or slipped into the scalding waters of Crested Pool. He swam a couple of strokes, then sank in front of his horrified family."


This makes me want to cry.

Jesus, I'd be wary if I saw kids walking up to an unfamiliar cow like that. That was a wild goddamn bull buffalo. They're lucky that didn't turn into a couple of dead bodies.

If that kid would have tripped while running around, the bison would have stomped him a couple of times and broken most of the bones in the kid's body. Farking idiots.

/notice the hiker standing motionless directly across from the bison at the beginning of the clip. He was doing the right thing.

wrong.
it doesn't want to to possibly hurt itself if its hoofs land incorrectly so it won't stomp on anything.

starlost: wrong.

Normally this would be true, but when it's kid stompin time a bison's just gonna ignore that rule for a bit. It's like being on vacation, you know?

Well, technically you're correct, but only because the bison would have used its head to batter and gore the life out of the kid.

Translated from the word balloons I garnered from the steam and dust clouds coming off of the bison*:
You little slant eyed bastard! My mother told me her mother told her that my greatgrandmother told her that you bastards built the iron tracks the round eyed monkeys used to shoot her Mother from!. Die, You little prick!

From the mind of the camera man:

Honest, Honey- I'm just recording this because that animal might go wild. Really.

No, that cute girl's ass in the tight shorts is in the center of the frame because that's where the action is.

Ohmygosh! Ohmygosh! She's so hot. Look at those tight shorts- I mean They walked right up to him. In those shorts!

Look, I can't help it if she's wearing those shorts. See, when I zoom in you can get a lot of additional detail in the shot- detail of the buffalo's coat, I mean. Not that girl's butt.

See him gesturing? See his head movements? He's saying I will get you out of this shot, Miss not-so-hot chick who is blocking my view of the cute Asian girl's ass. I will get you.

I'm going to go over there and pet her- I mean him. Pet her on the ass as she goes by. He's gesturing! And it worked- the cute girl moved over and I can zoom in on her ass again.

Oh crap. That stupid kid ruined it. Now I'm going to have to pan and follow him because my wife is NOT going to buy it if I keep the camera on the cute Asian girl. Stupid kid.

It's made of cedar, which keeps moths and bison away.

I dunno. Bison aren't that slow. It looked to me more like "I wonder which of these monkeys I can make dance?" was the primary objective.

I meant in the sense of "if there's no fence between animals and people, they must be friendly".

Fraking Asian tourists.

You're likely to get an eye poked out for the damn umbrellas they bring everywhere and they throw coins into the thermal springs for "good luck" even though we put up correctly translated signs that tell them to knock the shiat off because it can destroy the underground water paths.

Kinda sad the bison didn't take that one out.
 
2012-08-24 01:36:46 AM  
Given the holy crap nature of what in god's name is that family doing.......

I was impressed by the kid on the run. He didn't lose his head or panic, kept moving, made some decent cuts and stayed out of the bison's danger zone until it lost interest in killing him. Great job little guy!

I saw the same thing happen when I was in Yellowstone, only with a bear. Driving along, suddenly have to stop because other cars have stopped (not allowed unless something is blocking the road itself). Bear is off the side of the road, not that unusual. Then the minivan in front of us empties out and the mom tries to usher her kids towards the bear for a picture. Luckily a Ranger came along at the same time and got them the fark back inside their van and got traffic going again. This is a sadly common occurrence.

You know what else is made of cedar, and helps keep wild animals away?

A good Port Orford Cedar arrow shaft.

He was pretty fast on his feet. I hope his shorts stayed dry, though.

I was at Yellowstone last year, got some good shots of a bison. Of course I had a SLR camera with a big zoom on it, and as soon as that sucker moved we were out of there.

On reading this headline, my first thought was "Asian tourists?" And the picture did not dissapoint. I think they are used to docile critters and don't realize the danger or something.
 
2012-08-24 11:44:28 AM  
Also, I didn't see a single damn bear :-(

I am in Sedona right now, but will be flying home in a few hours. I have a hilarious photo of all of the tourist photographers in the grass about 20-30 feet from a buffalo.

I think that shot was more interesting than the shots I got of the buffalo itself.

Same here; saw Mule Deer, Bison, Elk and a young coyote. No Bears though.

We did see one and two cubs in Kings National Forrest after getting stuck on some switchbacks and having to come down in bad fog at 3am when we found the "open campgrounds" closed for the season. But at that point me and my buddy just looked at each other and were wondering if we were just seeing things (Had been driving for 10+ hours)

Pretty Epic Roadtrip. Really want to do it again and head north to Glacier NP this time.

My view of the bison, I'm actually closer to it than they are, but I'm through the trees.

When he started moving, I took off. Then he started going for a walk down the street.
