There are plenty of WILD animals in Yellowstone National Park. This was a mother black bear with 2 cubs foraging in the trees. The cubs were hiding beneath the foliage, and the mother kept looking for them. They were never far out of her sight!
I love these guys.
A traffic jam I can live with
The herd of buffalo (bison) is huge here. They are everywhere. You might become complacent and think they are tame animals; the park rangers have their hands full keeping people AWAY from them. I honestly don't understand the people who get out of their cars and approach these wild beasts - but, they do.

LOTS of babies at this time of year.
These beasts are elk. They, too, seem sweet and nice. But, they will kill you too - especially when they have young.
