I also got stuck in a bison herd on a motorcycle. For me, it happened in Custer SP in SD. I just sat there and took some great photos of Bison at about 1 foot away. One Bull stopped right next to me and looked at me. Talk about a pucker moment.

LOL! Been in herds in both Custer and Yellowstone. It is awesome and somewhat frightening at the same time. The first time we were in Custer we were photographing from the "safety" of our little Datsun pick-up. A baby decided to sow it's oats and started ramming our tire until mama called him away. Made for some great pics but it was a bit unsettling.

About 60 years ago our camp counselors would take groups of kids on long hikes often close to herds of Buffalo ... they just cautioned us against noise/sudden movement. The Buffalo kept an eye on us but otherwise left us alone. That was b4 internet and tendency to sue everyone. I doubt they do that anymore.

We were stopped on a road in Yellowstone watching a herd walk right past us in the opposite lane ... Just walking along, about fifty of them. Didn't bother us or the other cars in our lane. We all sat there and enjoyed it. Fifteen minutes or so - then the herd moved on, and we moved on. It was pretty awesome ...

Another time, a herd of about sixty or seventy walked right thru the campground at Teddy Roosevelt park ... just wandering around the tents and RV's, right thru the campsites. Was very cool to see ...

Looks to me like something spooked this Yellowstone herd, because in all my times at that park, I've never seen that kind of aggressive stampede. Most times, they just saunter around unless in Rut and Female near - then the bulls get a bit rowdy.

All they have to do is turn it into their regular auto insurance policy provider. They'll have to pay the deductible, but that's all.

Maybe. Not all policies are the same. Coverage does not always follow to a renal car. It also doesn't always cover the "extras" that some rental companies will make you pay for such as lost revenue on the vehicle.

Funniest thing we have seen was a couple with kids trying to get a donkey head back out of the passenger window. Don't feed the donkeys!!

Reminds me of a line the instructor gave us when taking a course on surviving an "off airport" landing.

Someone asked how fast you would have to run and for how long if a bear was chasing you.

The (very experienced) instructor replied "Just a little faster, and just a little further, than the guy next to you.".
