Yes! From June 27th We Get Animals Who Hate Humans

One day after we left Yellowstone to journey back home a tourist of the smaller variety got what was coming to him. We witnessed total stupidity at the Park and it's a wonder this type of thing doesn't happen every freaking day (the above shot is Katie-did's):

Bison injures boy posing for photos at Yellowstone
2 days ago
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy is in the hospital after a bison he was posing near flipped him in the air at Yellowstone National Park.
The Pennsylvania boy's condition was not available after the attack Thursday.
Park officials say the boy was posing with family members within a couple of feet of the mature bull bison.
Park rules require visitors to stay at least 25 yards from bison.

Ha! Park rangers give everyone who enters the Park a complete set of rules concerning wild animals and no one reads it! So, when tourists are gored, mauled, trampled or just plain killed and eaten I say "YAY!!!!!" and "GO WILD BEASTS!!!!" and "ALL TOURISTS SHOULD DIE!!!", because I am not a real tourist. I am a law abiding drive by-er who parks in the designated area and flips the finger to those who don't abide. In fact, I think one of them has my digit on video from when they parked in a no-parking quarter mile that was protecting a nesting pair of bald eagles. Another has a vivid memory of more than one finger after they stopped in the road, got out and took a picture of a bison ambling down the East-bound lane ( and standing within 5 yards of the arrogant beast) and then stopped again within 45 seconds because (gasp!) an Elk was hanging by the side of the road.

That's right. May the beasties rise up and give bad little boys the whuppin' they deserve.
