The authorities in the United States of America (USA) are trying to find two men who touched a bull in a national park located in the state of Wyoming. The case occurred a week after the US Department of Justice convicted a citizen of touching another specimen of the same species.
According to experts, bison that have contact with humans are often rejected by their former mates. Evidence for this is that the bull touched by the man who was condemned by justice was rejected by his former herd and sacrificed.
Touching is also not recommended due to the possibility of disease transmission.
The case of the two men took place on Sunday (4) in Grand Teton Park. The Department of Environmental Unit stated that the animal was not rejected by its herd this time.
US national parks have regulations that require tourists to stay at least 23 meters away from bison.
“Sunday, June 4, at approximately 1:00 p.m., two individuals were seen approaching and touching a bison calf at the south end of Elk Ranch Flats in Grand Teton National Park. The incident is currently under investigation and the park is requesting any information,” it reads in a statement from the unit. .
