When holiday-maker Raymond Reike decided to take on a bison during his trip through Yellowstone National Park, the animal wasn’t impressed. And this particular bison decided to respond in kind. Moreover, a shocked onlooker captured what happened next on camera – and it can only be described as karmic retribution.
The road-tripper in question, 55-year-old Reike, was working his way across some of the U.S.A.’s national parks. In Yellowstone, famed for the hot springs and wildlife that lie within its boundaries, he got up close and personal with a bison. It was an incident that he’d soon regret.
Yellowstone is one of more than 400 areas protected by the U.S. National Park Service, and the first ever area to be given National Park status. The park encompasses sections of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, and it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
