Bison Bring Traffic to a Halt in Yellowstone

A group of bison with a young calf among them were filmed slowing traffic as they walked on a road in Yellowstone National Park, footage shared on May 6 shows.

This footage was shot by Joseph Williams while on a recent trip to the Lamar Valley area of Yellowstone.

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.”

“Driving slowly behind a group of bison plodding along a two-lane road, you can certainly maneuver around them whenever it’s safe,” they said. “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.” Credit: Joseph Williams via Storyful
