Idiot taunts Yellowstone bison by banging his chest - ends TERRIBLY

The incident transpired on Tuesday evening (July 31) and was caught on camera by bystander Lindsey Jones, reports the New York Post.

Rangers arrested 55-year-old Raymond Reinke, of Pendleton, Oregon around 10:45 p.m. Thursday in Glacier National Park. This time, the bison charges a bit faster and with his horns down - ready to strike.

As you might imagine, the bison was having none of it and charges at the man.

'This is what happens when a buffoon meets a bison...,' wrote one man. During this exchange, Reinke reportedly told rangers he had plans to travel to Glacier National Park next. Again, officers reported Reinke seemed to be intoxicated and argumentative.

Hundreds of commenters didn't find the man's actions amusing or fearless, and said there should be consequences for what he did.

Superintendent Dan Wenk is quoted as saying: "The individual's behavior in this video is reckless, dangerous, and illegal".

The National Park Service advises that visitors "always remain" at least 100 yards (about 90 metres) from bears or wolves, and at least 25 yards (20 metres) away from all other wildlife. These distances safeguard both visitors and the experience of sharing a landscape with thousands of freely-roaming animals.

"Animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be", said the National Park in a statement. After a night in jail, Reinke was released on bond - and that's when he headed to Yellowstone, rangers said.
