Visitor at Yellowstone National Park injured by bison after allegedly kicking the animal, then arrested for alcohol-related charges

A man was injured by a bison in Yellowstone National Park after kicking the animal in the leg. Park rangers arrested Clarence Yoder, 40, for harassing a bison herd. Yoder was treated for minor injuries and charged with being under the influence of alcohol and disturbing wildlife. His companion, McKenna Bass, was also charged. Bison, North America’s largest land mammal, can sprint at 40 mph and often injure tourists who get too close. Yellowstone officials advise visitors to stay at least 25 yards away from large wildlife. Yellowstone is the only place where bison have continuously lived since prehistoric times.
