Today's award goes to a visitor to a Utah state park.
If you've heard the phrase, "You mess with the bull, you get the horns," it also apparently applies to bison.
A man learned that lesson the hard way on Antelope Island Saturday.
Witnesses said it appeared the man provoked the beast, and it promptly rammed him into a fence.
"This person is very, very, very lucky that he wasn't killed," said assistant park manager John Sullivan.
Sullivan said the man seemed uninjured immediately after the ordeal, and "other than being a little dusty ... embarrassed and shell-shocked," he was "none the worse for wear."
Witnesses told rangers the man rattled a fence separating him from the bison, appearing to try to get its attention as he was taking pictures. Some also said he may have chucked a couple of rocks at the beast.
There's more at the link, including a rather spectacular photograph (see the gallery) of the man being crushed against a fence.
Well . . . if you're dumb enough to throw rocks at wild critters that outweigh you several times over, you deserve all you get! In Africa, we had a name for people like that. We called them 'animal food'.
