Watch video of man teasing bison in Yellowstone National Park!

A plan to transfer wild bison from Yellowstone National Park to an American Indian tribe in northeast Montana faces possible delay.

New York Post shared the less than one-minute clip that was taken by an onlooker identified as Lindsey Jones.

The Yellowstone beast is not having it though, charging once again at the man.

'This is what happens when a buffoon meets a bison...,' wrote one man.

Unsurprisingly, the man's actions prompted the bison to charge at him twice in a row, creating panic among the bystanders. The video shows that the man was taunting a growling bison and was holding up traffic in Hayden Valley.

In a warning message on the National Park Service's official website for Yellowstone National Park, it says, "Wild animals are unpredictable and risky". During this exchange, Reinke reportedly told rangers he had plans to travel to Glacier National Park next.

Reinke's bond was revoked per the request of the Assistant U.S. Attorney on August 2 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Yellowstone's park guidelines state that visitors must stay at least 25 yards away from bison and elk and 100 yards away from bears and wolves. "These distances safeguard both visitors and a remarkable experience of sharing landscape with thousands of freely roaming animals".

"People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else", said park superintendent Dan Wenk.
