On Saturday, May 20, the Lamar Valley encounter was captured on camera by the national park. According to the press release that accompanied it, a park visitor approached the bison calf and pulled it up to the road as a herd of bison crossed the Lamar River next to the roadway.
The other bison abandoned the calf after coming into contact with humans. “Park rangers made numerous attempts to put the calf back with the herd. These initiatives fell short, the statement claimed.

Instead of doing anything to try and save the animals life, rangers gave up and killed it. Pathetic.
Humans don’t deserve nature. https://t.co/mEkMpEn6vp
