Slow-Moving Bison Leads Line of Traffic on Yellowstone Road

A bison was filmed slowing traffic as it plodded along a road at Yellowstone National Park, video shared on August 4 shows.

This video was captured by Alyssa Hampton and shared to a local Wyoming Facebook group.

According to the National Park Service, Yellowstone’s bison are “so accustomed to cars and asphalt roads that they seem to know the right-of-way” and “usually don’t stop in the middle of the road.” However, if one bison “decides to hold everyone up” the park service urged drivers not to beep their horn.

“Be patient for bison to make their way off the road, or just simply go around them, but please save the honking for the city,” the NPS wrote. Credit: Alyssa Hampton via Storyful
