American Bison Bull

An American bison bull stops to observe his surroundings as he makes his way across a hill in Yellowstone National Park.

The American bison is the only species of bison living in the United States and are abundant in Yellowstone.  They tend to take their time moving across the countryside but they can run up to 30 miles per hour, making them much faster than they look.  If they feel threatened bison will attack with their horns and each year ignorant tourists try to get too close and end up getting hurt.
