Drunk Sentenced to Jail Time for Taunting Bison at Yellowstone

posted by CRob - 

An Oregon man on a drunken "last hurrah" tour through several national parks was sentenced to 130 days in a Wyoming jail on Thursday for taunting a bison on a road in Yellowstone National Park. Raymond Reinke's dangerous interaction with the massive beast, during which he played the role of bullfighter without a cape, went viral when footage of it was shared by an onlooker on Facebook. His sentence also takes into account a pair of drunken disturbances that he caused at Glacier and Grand Teton National Parks; he's now been banned from all three parks and won't be allowed to drink for five years. After Reinke apologized to "the buffalo," Judge Leo Pico told him, "You're lucky the bison didn't take care of it, and you're standing in front of me." Pico added that Reinke's behavior was the "most egregious" case of animal harassment he'd ever seen at Yellowstone, The Billings Gazette reports.
