Man Arrested for Taunting Bison

An Oregon man who was caught on video harassing a bison in Yellowstone National Park was arrested in Glacier National Park in the third disturbance in less than a week at a national park, officials said Friday.

Rangers took Raymond Reinke of Pendleton, Oregon, into custody after another Yellowstone visitor took video of him walking up to a bison in a roadway congested with stopped cars and waving his arms. The animal charges him a couple of times, but Reinke doesn’t appear to get hurt.

Yellowstone officials warn visitors to stay at least 25 yards away from bison, which injure tourists every year who get too close. Rangers identified one of the guests as Reinke, who was sent back to Yellowstone and appeared in U.S. court Friday.
