With the vast numbers of people visiting the park, the number of incidences per year is pretty low. Probably a whole lot safer than visiting Chicago.

Haha. How many people would walk up 15' from a gang banger to take his pic??

And the season of Stupidity has begun. I stay out of the park in peak tourists months or else I would probably smack a few people who deserve it.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Agreed on stupidity season. I've been into the park 3 times this year but won't go again until after Labor Day.

I have the same view as Maureen, can't enjoy being around crowds where common sense is no longer common.
I have a herd of beef cows, all are quite gentle, most will allow me to touch them when I feed them their treats of range cubes. I have to be careful they don't hurt me by crowding in too fast, they love their treats. If my wife goes with me, they stand back and are more cautious. If we take a couple other people or more than one ATV they are nervous and some will not come to me to eat. If they have a calf less than 2 weeks old they will not approach at all. These cows are grazing on 3 sides of my house and calm with all that I do near them but when we have company most of them will retreat toward the back of the pasture. If small children visit they often talk, laugh, scream. move fast and these same cows become very nervous, if they have no calves they will leave the area fast. If they have calves they are ready to stand their ground and fight or bring the fight to you, they don't really care. Having raised cattle for over 50 years I can recognize what their reaction is going to be by the way they hold their head and ears. Bison seem to be much the same and I've been amazed watching people around them, approaching close, turning their back on some animals apparently trying to get close to that cute little furry calf. It shouldn't have a bad outcome if the person knows their animals and can read their reactions but many tourist don't have a clue and there are too many of them at any one time. It's a wonder there isn't more bad experiences than have been recorded.

I think the problem is global, and the core older wiser adult group always go early and then later in the season. Just how wild can the critters be ?? and is it not more like a super zoo. Of course I live close to one as well and have used it extensively. But I'm far more happy these days not visiting the zoo and shooting the lands closer to home. I have promised myself to not be one of the snappers standing in a group.... and to go get what I need on my own. but then ... I have always been that way. As I get older and wiser my tolerance gets thinner. And if Charlene gets up against it ...O well, stupid is as stupid does.

ummm many Americans go on at me about our dangerous wildlife, apart from snakes most are avoidable, even snakes generally are not going to attack you unless you tread on them. Sharks are a world wide thing. we have no bears wolves mountain lions elk etc. People seem under the impression that kangaroos are cute and cuddly but Id never go near a big male. I do not understand why Australia gets this thing about scary animals yet there are plenty elsewhere :-P:-D This article and bears would be enough to put Aussies off going to USA but Im more worried about some of the humans there than any wild animal
