View PostThere seems to be an abundance of idiots in the world. This is just Mother Nature's way of thinning the herd.

 

Almost 7 billion. Let's say the about 2 billion of those have actual value to the human race.

There are many that actively seek a Darwin award.I hope these idiots are banned from all National parks for life.

 

Sorry,I don't remember how to post the video,so you will have to use the link.

 

Screaming as she is flung through the air, this is the shocking moment a woman is attacked by a raging bison at Yellowstone National Park - while filming the creature with a video camera.

Cathy Hayes can be heard screaming 'No!' as the 2,000lbs beast smashed into her with its head and threw her into the air 'like a rag doll'.

The teacher, 49, was convinced she would die as the ferocious bovine rammed her left thigh and flipped her over onto her right one.

 

 

But she was spared when her horrified husband honked his car horn to scare it away and managed to distract the animal, which bolted.

Mrs Hayes, from Utah, was filming the bison and joking with her husband, Jeff, and his brother, Donald, about getting a shot of Donald being gored by the animal.

Then Donald got too close - and it attacked.

Mrs Hayes said: 'Donald decided to break through the trees and that's when the buffalo tried to get at him.'

 

 

She tried to seek cover behind a tree then ran for her car but was caught by the snarling beast. The disturbing footage shows the camera being thrown up and down as the bison tries repeatedly to maul her.

'He flipped me end-over-end like a rag doll, in the air,' she said.

 

As he watched his wife being mauled, Mr Hayes honked the horn and shouted 'Back! Back!' which startled the bovine away.

'I was waiting, I was truly waiting for him to stomp my head because I could hear his breathing and he was right by my head, I just thought this was it, this was how I was going to go out,' she said.

Mrs Hayes suffered severe bruising to her right leg and the right knee was badly swollen. Her husband, 61, broke his shoulder when he tripped and fell.

Even now when she watches the footage it disturbs her.

 

'My heart's racing again, it was a traumatic experience. Just don't do what I did, be smart, people'.

An investigation by park authorities has revealed that the bison may have been provoked.

A close look at the footage shows that someone threw a stick at it right before it attacked.

It is unclear if it was thrown by a member of the Hayes party.
