Yellowstone Opens, Woman Immediately Attempts To Pet Bison

Well, the idiots certainly don't take long to emerge from hiding these days. It only took a matter of hours after Yellowstone National Park opened for the season this weekend for a visiting tourist to walk up to a resting bison and pet it while her partner filmed from a much safer distance away.

While often found in bucolic surroundings, bison are in fact wild animals, and have the ability to inflict great physical harm and even death on humans clueless enough to attempt to interact with them like they would with their own house cat.

While this tourist emerged from her bison interaction unharmed, we here at TGR hope all our audience exercises good judgement when considering petting wild animals, especially those with hooves and horns and which are several times larger than them.

quit shaming the tourists

let them tour the park

shit

Natural selection taking place before our very eyes

I am not sure how intentional it was to have “WOMAN” in this headline of this story. I am sure we have quite a few “MEN” geniuses too in this department of Doing That Amazingly Stupid Thing. I see words like “chick” all over this website and worse women writers using it. Can we harmonize the language of the site a bit more to be inclusive as opposed to making women sound and appear clueless, despite showing them doing pretty cool stuff!

ACADIA - You said: “I am not sure how intentional it was to have “WOMAN” in this headline of this story.”

You cant be serious? THIS story is about a stupid FEMALE who walked up to a bison and pet it like it was her neighbor’s dog. Those are the facts. Your post suggests perhaps there are men who are stupid too. Well, no Sh*t. You forgot your cape Capt. Obvious.

Take your bs equality argument elsewhere and not because women’s equality is not important, but because THIS story has nothing to do with women’s equality. I didn’t watch the video and think “women are dumb”, I thought “Gee, that person is an idiot. I wonder if she will die”. If it was a man, I would have thought the same thing. You are actually the person focusing on the fact it was woman. The sex of an idiot has nothing to do with the fact that person is an idiot.

Its mind-boggling how pathetic that was.

    Maybe it did not. Maybe with the sprinkling of other “chick” references, I felt there was a certain trend. I would have even said, “Gee, thanks for clarifying.”

    But it’s equally mind-boggling how a person who “writes” stories online cannot handle comments from readers (no matter how much they contradict your intentions), and respond with grace and dignity. “Take your bs equality argument elsewhere…”, really? Very Cultured! Well, all the best to you!

Video: The Funny Truth About Buying A Mountain Bike

IFHT Films knows a thing or two about mountain bike humor, and their latest short tells exactly what it’s like to get into the world of mountain biking. It goes something like this: see someone else having fun on a bike, buy sh***y bike, hate it. Buy better bike, break it. Buy nice bike, love it. Get hooked on the sport and empty your wallet on it. We can all relate, can’t we? RELATED: Micayla Gatto + IFHT Films = Kendrick Lamar and Bikes

Park City Reclaims Shot-Ski World Record from Breckenridge

In the most recent installment of what seems to be a constant game of one-upmanship, Park City has yet again unseated Breckenridge as the home of the world’s longest shot-ski.  Not to be outdone after having its 2016 record broken by Breckenridge at the 2017 Ullrfest, Park City’s local Rotary Club teamed up with High West Distillery. The team filled 1,275 shot glasses with double rye whiskey to be downed in relative unison, and knocked them all back. RELATED: Car Camper Hosts
