Bison Walking With Calves Hold Up Traffic in Yellowstone

A woman was held up in Yellow Stone National Park when a herd of bison caused a traffic jam as they roamed the roads with their calves.

This close-up video was shot by Cindy Shaffer, a Montana native who regularly posts footage from the park and the nearby Grand Tetons National Park.

“Well it’s my lucky day,” Shaffer says, adding “this is the best kind of bison jam to be stuck in.”
