Now onto the story of how I almost walked into a bison. So there was bisons all around me... There was one in the middle of the sidewalk. It was lunch time, and I was kind of sleepy. It being a real bison didn't really occur to me. I was like, that model of a bison sure look life like... Then I got super close, maybe like less than 10 feet away. I was like, wait! something is wrong. Why is no one petting it and taking pictures with it? o_O Then I saw it turn its head towards me and grunted twice through its nose (probably a warning), and in my mind I was like WTF? IT WAS NOT A MODEL? I was about to turn around and run, but as any wilderness survival book would tell you, do not turn around and run at a time like that. A warning is not threatening, if you run, you may trigger the wildlife's killing instincts. You are suppose to back off slowly and don't show any signs of fear. Dude, that seriously scared the shit out of me!
This is the buffalo in the middle of the sidewalk.
This is the buffalo turning its head towards me and giving me a warning. -__-
