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

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!

An Entire Mountainside Just Collapsed in The Swiss Alps

Turns out mountains are pretty fragile creatures. We tend to think of them as sturdy mounds of rock that never move, but sometimes the unthinkable happens, and an entire mountain face will spontaneously collapse. This is exactly what happened yesterday morning in Val Bregaglia in the Swiss Alps, when the NE face of Piz Cengalo gave way, causing a rockslide and ensuing debris flow in the valley that moved an estimated 4 million cubic meters of material. According to local news, eight people
