You Can’t Fix Stupid – Baby bison euthanized after tourists kidnapped it because it looked cold

The National Parks Service announced on Monday that the bison calf captured by tourists last week was euthanized.

Mashable reported Sunday that a father and son kidnapped a bison calf, placed it in their SUV and brought it to Lamar Buffalo Ranch in Wyoming last Monday, because they said that it looked cold and they feared for its well being.

“Park Rangers tried repeatedly to reunite the newborn bison calf with the herd. These efforts failed,” the National Parks Service wrote in a post on its website. “The bison calf was later euthanized because it was abandoned and causing a dangerous situation by continually approaching people and cars along the roadway.”

The post also highlighted that the capture of the bison was incredibly dangerous because, “adult animals are very protective of their young and will act aggressively to defend them.”

The father and son who captured the baby animal were ticketed for their actions.

Karen Richerson, a bystander who saw the father and son pull up with the bison in the vehicle, said the two had genuine concern for the animal.
