Bison are even more menacing when they growl!
Everyone knows Yellowstone's bison are not to be trifled with. But this bull in rut is even more menacing than normal when he starts growling loudly and stares down a woman on a nearby motorcycle.
It makes for several very tense moments as she waits for the bull to move on.
I don't think anyone in that car breathed during that stand down. Talk about a pants-soiling type of moment! Kind of reminds me of that scene in Jurassic Park where the guy has to hold stone still to keep the T-Rex from eating him. The woman in the video is Kelli Mcdaniel according to the video's description.
She didn't add much in the way of comments to the description, but I'm betting she went out of her way to give all other bison a much wider berth in the park.
She did do the right thing here. Any sudden movements would have likely set this big guy off and her odds against getting away unscathed wouldn't have been good against thousands of pounds of muscle!
