BILLINGS - Just a reminder: When visiting Yellowstone National Park, stay at least 25 yards away from the elk.
One visitor recently learned why.
Jody Tibbets posted this video to Facebook of a woman who was standing a little too close.
The incident is the latest of many already this spring in the park.
This information on staying safe in Yellowstone apparently bears repeating:
- Do not approach wildlife, no matter how tame or calm they appear.
- Stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves and at least 25 yards away from all other large animals — bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose and coyotes.
- Do not feed any animals.
