Knee Deep in the Muck
American Prairie Reserve, Montana
I would be concerned if I were stuck up to my knees in mud, but it did not phase these bison who have plenty of muscle power with which to extract themselves. This water hole with it’s small surrounding area of green grass was quite an attraction for the bison for obvious reasons.

Quite a hefty fellow! I’m sure he has no trouble getting out of the muck. Did you see the video of the couple being chased by a herd of bison in Yellowstone the other day? I don’t think they could have outrun them! Fortunately the herd took a turn just as they were gaining ground.
I did not see that video but will look it up. Usually when I hear about such things happening, I’m usually rooting for the critters rather than the humans because such events occur when humans are doing stupid things that they’ve been warned not to do. A woman just recently received a jail sentence for acting stupid when a grizzly bluff charged her and some other folks. Everyone else ducked quickly back into their cars. She did not, but fortunately for her the griz didn’t escalate the situation.
I wondered about that. And then to think there was actually someone taking video of it as it happened. 🤷
