THIS IS the moment an angry one-and-a-half tonne bison decided to assert its dominance by charging directly at a stunned photographer.

Luckily for local photographer Marc Latremouille he was able to take the heart-stopping shot from the safety of his car before driving off.

‘The bison was sprinting to convey dominance over other bison,’ explains Marc. ‘Luckily for me, he didn’t try to assert his dominance towards my car.’

    Poor bison is probably running in terror from a sex crazed muslim tourist.

      It didn’t say. There was no story, it was part of the Photos of the Day at UK Telegraph.

  • I’ve seen bison up close.

    Massive creatures.

    If that thing was running full pelt, it could easily overturn a small car.

      What sort is it? River, Pudding, or Wash Hand?

      If they do it right, they can make a fortune out of licensing the shot. I mean, how often do you get this sort of angle on a buffalo?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        And live?
        Not often!

    How many times recently have we seen stupid tourists thinking from the safety of their cars get too close and aggravate wildlife..mostly in Africa, elephants overturning cars etc. What makes anyone think he can get that close without consequence and if he escapes call himself anything but a fool?

    Holy synonicity Batman!
    I just got off the phone with my son and he was telling me about how he had his and his squad’s gunnery practice interrupted by a herd of roaming buffalo. Yes, apparently someone decided that a spawling Marine Corps base in California was just the place for them.

    Unfortunately there are career-ending sanctions in the Marines for hosing down a herd of federally protected buffalo with a Mark-19 grenade launcher (or any crew served weapons for that matter) as a prelude to an impromptu field BBQ.
    Who would have known?

  • Here’s a bison from Chauvet, maybe 30,000 years old.
