If you ever find yourself being charged by a 2,000-pound bison here’s a pro tip: play dead. That’s apparently what a woman did in Yellowstone last Friday when she fell trying to run away from a charging bison. The woman—who remains unnamed—is a Montana local and knew to play dead in that situation. Her quick thinking worked in her favor, allowing her to walk away without a single scratch.
However, the best way to avoid an unnecessary visit to the E.R. during your next Yellowstone is rather simple: Just stay the f*ck away from the bison. They’re not fuzzy cows, people.
