If you're planning a trip to Yellowstone National Park with your family?When you visit Yellowstone or any National Park that you must obey the posted rules regarding interaction with the local wildlife,it is important to understand.These rules have been created for both your safety as well as for the safety of the animals themselves,and interactions can be deadly.A photo is not worth the life of an animal,or yourself.

One of the main reasons that park officials warn visitors not to interact with animals is the propensity for them to be rejected by their own herd if they are touched by humans.As a result of this sad situation combined with the fact that the calf was approaching humans regularly,the decision was made to euthanize the calf for the safety of the tourists.

Social media has been ablaze with reports of a recent incident in Yellowstone National Park where tourists put a newborn bison calf into their SUV and transported it to a park facility.The park service at Yellowstone released a statement via their Facebook page confirming the story,and also confirming that the calf was later euthanized.
