It's almost that time of year again. You know, where people decide they are one with the wild, more brave than smart, and invincible to the "average bear". Well, my friends, I am here to tell you, you are not invincible, you must be smarter, and you are not "one with the wild".

Every year Yellowstone National Park gets a crazy amount of visitors, I mean millions of people, from all over the world. Some have never seen bison or deer, and most have not seen a bear that isn't behind a glass window.

I have gathered my favorite, "Be Smart Not Brave" Bison video's from YouTube, showing you JUST why we have to have our thinking caps on this Yellowstone National Park season. And really, this goes for any place you visit that has wild animals.

Although pretty and cute...please for the love of Jesus, keep your distance.

This first one is one that many have seen, and the victim, in this case, did receive some serious injuries.

In this video, I can't remember how many times I thought, "what parent is just watching this?" DO NOT let your kids get this close to any wild animal, for real. There are signs all over and we were given this thing at birth called "common sense". Let's use it. Note the "smile" on the adult's face at the end. This could have turned deadly.

This is one of my favorites for the pure fact that the lady taking the video's commentary made me laugh. "That's about the level of intelligence we see here." HAHA...she's not wrong.

Don't be fooled, it's not just bison that attack, bears, elk, and ANY other animal you may come encounter with, all have the natural instinct to "protect" themselves.

I love the look on this guy's face, and I will leave you with this last video. Notice how when he started to feel uncomfortable, he got out of there. Good job my friend!

Be smart this season, you are not invincible.
