One does wonder if the first recorded attack on a human by a Bigfoot will be posted on YouTube after a human throws a rolled newspaper at the creature?
“Bison May Have Been Provoked. …”
July 26, 2010
Yellowstone National Parks officials are investigating whether a recent bson attack on a woman was provoked, either because she got too close, while videotaping the animal, or because something was thrown at it.
The woman, whose run in with the animal was caught on the video she was shooting at the time, was in violation of park rules requiring visitors to keep a safe distance from wildlife, officials said.
Cathy Hayes of Farr West, Utah was filming a bull bison last week, when the animal grew agitated and gave chase. Hayes has estimated that she and a friend were within 35 feet of the bison when it charged.
Hayes, who suffered injuries to her thigh, knee and foot, has recounted the encounter in harrowing terms [on national television].
