Last year when I was at the park my wife got a book, about Deaths in
Yellowstone, it was rather interesting, worry more about the Buffalo then
the bears, they kill a lot more people then bears do
if corn oil is made from corn, and olive oil is made from olives, where dose
baby oil come from?
I remember from my kidhood (hold the ice age jokes please) reading about
the American Bison and what grumpy critters they are, and how one should
not trust any animal that large and that stupid. I was raised in
eastern South Dakota (Yankton) and my folks and us kids would travel by
car to see other relative every summer. One spot that was almost always
on the route was the Black Hills and Custer state park. I remember
driving along and coming across a large herd of bison and a large herd
of people walking up to them, cameras in hand, looking to snap a photo
of junior and a genuine buffalo. I think that was my first indication
that supposed homo sapiens can be astonishingly stupid.
Then down the road came a small park service fire truck to try to
separate one animal from the other. Happily, they did not need to pump
water at either group, but the potential was there.

We've had our share of buffalo close calls, and expect more (we tend to
ride in the more out of the way places where one is likely to encounter
these beasts. See a previous post I had with a link of our bikes next
to the buffalo in Custer.
