A Yellowstone Park visitor posted this video on Facebook of a man appearing to taunt a buffalo in the Hayden Valley Tuesday evening. 

The man did not appear to be injured as he yelled at the animal and it charged.

Lindsey Jones posted the video and called it #dontdrinkandbuffalo but it wasn’t entirely clear if the man was drunk.

Park officials warn members of the public to not approach wildlife, especially large ones like buffalo, because they can injure or kill.
