Yellowstone visitor arrested for reportedly kicking bison while intoxicated

A 40-year-old man from Idaho, Clarence Yoder, was arrested at Yellowstone National Park for harassing a herd of bison and kicking one in the leg. Yoder faces charges for disturbing wildlife, being under the influence of alcohol, and disorderly conduct. He was hospitalized for minor injuries and then taken to the Gallatin County Detention Center. Another person, Mckenna Bass, was arrested for driving under the influence and disturbing wildlife. Both pleaded not guilty, were released on bond, and are banned from the park. Wildlife harassment is a recurring problem in national parks, with bison causing many injuries to visitors due to their sensitivity to personal space. Tourists are advised to stay at least 75 feet away from wildlife to avoid incidents.
