Yellowstone National Park is one of the most beautiful, and scenic places on earth. The park is packed with natural wonders, breathtaking landscapes, and endless activities one can enjoy. Then there is the wildlife, from birds to deer, and even bears, Yellowstone has it all. One animal you are guaranteed to see while exploring Yellowstone is the bison. These massive mammals can be spotted just about anywhere in the park.

The National Park Service advises that visitors should stay at least 25 yards away from large animals like bison. Some people, however, just don’t understand how dangerous and aggressive these animals can be, and all too often, a tourist will venture too close.

One woman, in particular, had the scare of a lifetime when she stopped to take a selfie with a bison who obviously didn’t want its picture taken.

The woman in the video casually walks up to the great beast, snaps a few photos, then proceeds to walk away. she then stops, turns around, and heads back to the animal to take a selfie with it. As her back is turned to it, and her camera is raised, the bison decides to charge. The woman, realizing the danger, takes off in a sprint! She makes it only a few strides before she falls to the ground. Once she falls, the bison gives up. However, the lucky lady risks another charge and snaps a couple more pictures before leaving the animal alone.

Watch the encounter in the video below.
