Selfies & Bison.....

Not sure where to post this. Move topic if needed. Wanted to show just how self absorbed and "dumb" some folks get when it comes to the "selfies" craze.....unreal.

Re: Selfies & Bison.....

A friend of mine said that when him and his wife went to Yellowstone a few years back, parents were having their kids sit right in front of a bison and take a picture.

Having been there myself as well, I can say, despite all the signage warning otherwise, people think they are visiting a zoo and these animals are placed in the park for their enjoyment.

Re: Selfies & Bison.....

Been there a few years ago. Bison go where Bison want to go, which is sometimes where people want to go also. The area around Old Faithful and the other geysers has a walkway which winds around several acres. It is also where numerous bison hang out. I had a young one approach to within 15 ft while he calmly browsed on the grasses.

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.

a.k.a. High-Tech Darwinism..Hopefully the Bison will assist in cleansing the human gene pool.
