Snoozing Bison Snarls Traffic in Yellowstone National Park

A tired bison caused a traffic jam, and some amusement, as it lay sleeping across a lane in Yellowstone National Park on August 3. Photographer Michael Osborn of Foto Hysteria captured the snoozing bison and a line of vehicles being held up behind it. “This one decided to take a nap in the middle of the road,” Osborn chuckled as he filmed. “They can nap anywhere they want,” he wrote on Facebook. According to the National Park Service, Yellowstone’s bison are “so accustomed to cars and asphalt roads that they seem to know the right-of-way” and “usually don’t stop in the middle of the road.” However, if one bison “decides to hold everyone up” the park service urged drivers not to beep their horn. “Be patient for bison to make their way off the road, or just simply go around them, but please save the honking for the city,” the NPS wrote.
