CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A video recently uploaded to YouTube shows a man petting a bison in yet another example of dangerous behavior by a visitor to Yellowstone National Park. The bison dodges away from the man but park officials say similar encounters happen every year, sometimes with harmful results. Park officials are investigating details of the video posted online July 8. Also in July, a bison charged and tossed a 9-year-old Florida girl several feet into the air after tourists came within 10 feet of the animal.
