A man was gored by a bull bison near the Norris campground on Saturday in Yellowstone National Park.
. . .
The man let the bull approach within a few feet of where he was sitting and refused to move away.
This resulted in the animal tossing the man nearly 10 feet in the air and being pinned to the ground. The park visitor broke his collarbone, shoulder blade and ribs. He also suffered a groin injury.
. . .
“Park visitors are reminded that wildlife in Yellowstone is, in fact, wild,” the park said in a news release Monday.

The only response I can make to the last sentence quoted above is, “No s***, Sherlock!” Being an African boy, I was raised to give way (rapidly!) to anything larger and heavier than I was, and particularly to anything with more feet, more horns or sharper teeth than myself. How is it that people blithely ignore clearly-spelled-out warnings about the need to do so? Do they’re think they’re immune?
Verily, the mind doth boggle . . .
