Video: Wyoming Bison Tear Down Gov't Shutdown Sign (Really)


"Guess the bison don’t like the government shutdown either."

Phill Randall carries the American flag as wranglers work to control the herd as they move toward the corral area Friday, Sept. 27, 2013 at the annual bison roundup at Custer State Park in South Dakota. Over 1,100 of the park's bison are rounded up from all corners and herded into corrals where they'll be vaccinated, branded and sorted for an auction in November. Credit: AP

The U.S. government’s attempt to shut down monuments and national parks has so far proven to be a half-successful effort: While it has closed off roads and public attractions, the government hasn't exactly been able to keep people out of them.

In fact, it's become something of a fad across the nation to defy “CLOSED” signs and “trespass” on public property -- U.S. veterans are doing it, average citizens are doing it, and now even two bison in Wyoming are getting in on the action.

From the video’s description:

This barricade was sitting on a turn out next to the Gros Ventre road about a mile north of Kelly Wyoming. Guess the bison don’t like the government shutdown either. Somehow I feel humans will be blamed for this vandalism, so I’m sending a link to the proper authorities.
