Bison Stampede Races Down Car-Filled Road At Custer State Park In South Dakota

Talk about things you want to see but don’t really want to see…

Visitors to Custer State Park in South Dakota, a 71,000-square-mile wildlife-rich preserve, found themselves in the midst of one of nature’s most violent events when a herd of bison began charging nearby.

According to the National Park Service, most bison live in herds of 300 to 500 animals, but Custer National Park is home to about 1,500 of these once-nearly-extinct American beauties, so we can’t say exactly how many were involved in this event.

From the video it appears that when the onslaught hit the roadway from a field on the left, some somewhat calm bison were slowly roaming the road, causing those bison to start running as well.

The stampede took the path of least resistance as it hit the road as bison began flying down the sidewalk, weaving in and out of cars containing a bunch of terrified tourists.

And while many people, myself included, say they’d love to witness one of those epic moments, I’m sure those caught in the dusty chaos were less than pleased.

Sure, the bison will try to avoid you, because if they fall or can’t keep up, they’ll get trampled under thousands of hooves, but the idea of ​​one hitting your car could end up with you getting trampled under thousands of hooves become is just frightening.

All because you wanted to impress your family with the coolest vacation ever, talk bad luck.

Thankfully, no damage appears to have occurred to the cars in the video as the bison dodged them and continued their mindless sprint across the prairie.
