It's a proven fact that Yellowstone National Park is one of the greatest places you can ever visit. However, for some tourists, it just isn't good enough. This is a throwback to one of the more famous tourist moments involving Yellowstone when tourists complained about the "trained bears".
The vehicles had it coming. Seriously. Bull elk during rut will aggressively attack just about anyone and anything. But, there was one infamous bull nearly 10 years ago that went out of his way to set a vehicle damage record.
When I think of my favorite viral moments from Yellowstone National Park, this is among the best of the best. It's that fun time when a bull elk took a severe dislike to a snowmobile and decided to challenge it (and everything else) to a fight.
If you visit Yellowstone National Park now, you'll find feeding bears solidly in the "don't" column. But, there was an era many years ago when people were not only allowed to feed bears in Yellowstone, the practice was sort of encouraged.
Trying to get closer to bison is dangerous for many reasons. It's obvious these are large animals, but they're also wildly unpredictable. Yellowstone tourists learned this lesson the hard way a few weeks ago.
