Stupid Selfies

The newest way to show that you are stupid, is to endanger both yourself and wild animals, by attempting to take photo 'selfies' with them. I am not talking about being photo bombed by some animal popping up unexpectedly in your pictures, nor the sort, where the animal is way, way, behind you, but I am talking about the sort where its furry, scaly or leathery face is right next to yours, or as close to that as possible.

The latest set of idiots to be warned about this are the tourists in the US Yellowstone Park reservation, located in north-west Wyoming, who have taken to getting up close and personal (well, within 18ft -5.5m - of the animal) with 2,000 pound (900kg) Bison's and other assorted critters.

Predictably the Bison etc, don't always react well to this personal space invasion, and can charge at about 30 mph .... park rules say that you stay at least 75ft (23m) away from the very large animals, and even further away from predatory animals such as bears or wolves!

Bison 'Selfies' Can Go Wrong .....

So far this year, 4 tourists, have been injured in such episodes (although none too seriously), with a 43-year-old Mississippi woman the latest, after she was thrown into the air by a bison, after she turned her back on it to take a photo of herself and daughter with it in the shot.

Dumb is, as dumb does ..... and here's a few fools proving that you can't rule against stupid.

Do Bears Shit In The Woods Or Is It The Tourists?
Nearly .... Gotcha!
