YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — We’ve heard a lot about tourists trying to touch wildlife at Yellowstone National Park but this story takes personal encounters with animals a bit further.

Karen Richardson of Victor was one of several parents chaperoning a group of fifth-graders on a field trip to Yellowstone this week.

Richardson says on Monday, as students were being taught at Lamar Buffalo Ranch, a father and son pulled up at the ranger station with a bison calf in their SUV.

“They were demanding to speak with a ranger,” Richardson tells EastIdahoNews.com. “They were seriously worried that the calf was freezing and dying.”

Rob Heusevelet, a father of a student, told the men to remove the bison from their car and warned they could be in trouble for having the animal.

“They didn’t care,” Heusevelet says. “They sincerely thought they were doing a service and helping that calf by trying to save it from the cold.”

Law enforcement rangers were called and the father-and-son tourists, who were from another country, were ticketed.

Heusevelet says the rangers followed the pair back to where they had picked up the bison, and the animal was released.

Yellowstone visitors are not allowed to approach wildlife and are to stay at least 25 yards away from large animals, according to the National Park Service website.

The school group returned from their trip Friday, and Richardson posted a photo of the bison on Facebook with the caption:

Dear tourists: the bison calf is not cold and it is not lost. PUT IT BACK!


I think people are starting to misunderstand animals these days.

That is smarter thinking than those tourists. People these days think animals are cute and can be made into pets easily. That and they think Bison are harmless.

Bison are yummy. That's all there is to it. They just wanted free bison steaks for the next year.

Tongue in cheek, btw.
Although, bison steak is pretty damn good. There's a place in Roanoke, VA that serves it. Expensive but good. I'm going to stop posting now. Go home Kmaro, you're drunk.

Park Rangers have updated us on the condition of the calf. It is now dead thanks to these tourists as it was rejected by the herd.
