A bison in Yellowstone stages a roadblock

NICK EICHER, HOST: Why did the bison cross the road?

CINDY SHAFFER: Well, this guy's been standing on the road 20 minutes now...

Well, I guess he didn’t really cross, and that was the problem up in Yellowstone park recently.

Cindy Shaffer of Montana posts videos online from her visits to Yellowstone. This one was a little different.

SHAFFER: That bison is not moving…This is just crazy.

On her way home last Friday evening Shaffer got stuck in a bison jam … one single bison blocking both lanes of traffic. One driver pulled around Shaffer to get up in the bison's face...hoping to encourage it to mosey along … but it just wouldn’t.

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Well, he was there first!

EICHER: Not a bad point.

SHAFFER: But it's been at least 20 minutes. I want to go home.

Alas … home, home, is the range … where frequently was heard … quite a few discouraging words.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
