Humans Gone Wild
« on: May 17, 2016, 12:18:13 AM »
Sometimes humans just don't know what to do in the face of real nature.  They pose for selfies in front of a pride of lions, they attempt to pet wild bison on an open range, and in these 2 cases, they just couldn't control themselves.

Bison Calf Euthanized After Yellowstone Tourists Put It In Their Car To 'Keep It Warm'

After a newborn baby bison calf was scooped off the road in Yellowstone National Park by two tourists last week and placed in their car to "keep it warm," authorities are again warning the public to keep their distance from wild animals in the popular park.

Although rangers attempted several times to reunite the calf with the herd, their efforts failed, and the baby bison had to be euthanized.

Outrage after dolphin beach death

Wildlife experts and social media users expressed outrage as images showed a crowd of people holding and touching a dolphin in the city of Santa Teresita.
One report suggested the dolphin was already dead, contradicting accounts that it had been pulled out of the sea.
The Franciscana dolphin is vulnerable to extinction, and conservationists say only 30,000 of them live in the wild.
An Argentine wildlife foundation said that two dolphins were found by beach-goers and that at least one of them was dead.
A video of the incident appears to show a man taking one dolphin from the sea and walking around with it.
In pictures posted on Facebook, dozens of people are seen around the animal, touching it and taking photos.
The tourists were condemned online for supposedly killing the animal, but it is not clear if the images are of the same dolphin.
