YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — A video shows employees at a rental car agency all they need to know about how a car got damaged in Yellowstone National Park.
The footage shows one of dozens of bison stampeding through the park as it rams the rental and cracks the windshield. No injuries were reported.
The Casper Star Tribune reports that a family member caught the scene on video Aug. 13 after the animals brought traffic to a standstill.
The Delle Chiaie family, who took the video, were caught in a stampede of bison Aug. 13 while driving through the Lamar Valley near the park’s northern border, the Star Tribune reported. The area is known for being a prime animal watching site.
“We had gone to Lamar Valley to try and view a moose we had seen the night before,” Bruce Delle Chiaie, the driver, told the Star Tribune.
The footage shows one of dozens of bison stampeding through the park as it rams the rental car and cracks the windshield. No injuries were reported, the Star Tribune reported.
Bison weigh up to 2,000 pounds and run up to 30 mph.
A video shot earlier this summer showed a man petting a bison’s head in Yellowstone. Nobody was hurt, but park officials warned visitors to keep their distance.
In July, a bison threw a 9-year-old girl into the air in Yellowstone. She wasn’t seriously hurt.
