Reinke was arrested on Thursday at about 10:45 p.m.by Glacier National Park rangers. He turns back toward the bison, puffs up his chest and growls. In May, a woman stumbled across a bison as she came around a bend in a trail, and the startled animal head-butted her off the path. Rangers said Reinke, who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, was intoxicated and argumentative. He was arrested July 28 at Grand Teton National Park after rangers suspected him of drunk and disorderly conduct.

We noticed behind us a man in socks and no shoes walking up the road towards the bison.

Reinke was issued a citation requiring a court appearance that same evening before the park was aware of the circulating video.

Superintendent Dan Wenk is quoted as saying: "The individual's behavior in this video is reckless, dangerous, and illegal".

Unlike the "hero" of this story, visitors to the park are advised to remain at least 100 yards from bears or wolves and 25 yards from any other wildlife. "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", Wenk told BNQT. The Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. state of Wyoming has been preserving this animal for a long time, and they keep warning the visitors to stay away and enjoy the sight of this remarkable animals.

A short time later, Reinke harassed the bison, rangers suspect.
