Disturbing Encounter: Tourist’s Actions Lead to Deαth of Bison Calf in Yellowstone National Park

In a news release from Yellowstone National Park, a bison calf d!ed after being supposedly “disturbed” by a visitor.

Yellowstone National Park, the event occurred on May 20 in the northeastern part of the park’s Lamar Valley when a man in his 40s or 50s dressed in a blue shirt and black pants approached a young bison calf.

The visitor assisted in pulling a calf that had become separated from its mother out of the Lamar River and onto the road, where the animal approached automobiles and people, “causing a hazardous situation,” to the park.

Despite efforts by park officials to “repeatedly reunite” the calf with its herd, the act ultimately led to the tiny mammal being rejected and abandoned by the pack. According to the park, “interference by people” could lead wildlife to “reject their offspring.”
