National Park Rangers arrest man caught on camera harassing bison

National Park Rangers arrest man caught on camera harassing bison

An Oregon man, arrested in three different national parks in a single week, was charged Friday with taunting a bison in Yellowstone-a roadside incident captured by a tourist on video that attracted widespread public outrage when viewed millions of times of social media.

Officers began looking for vehicle on Thursday night and at the same time the ranger were called to the Many Glacier Hotel because two guests were arguing and creating a disturbance in the hotel dining room.

"We have a regulation in Yellowstone that requires people to stay at least 25 yards away from bison, elk and other animals, and 100 yards from wolves and bears", says Yellowstone National Park Spokesman Neal Herbert.

The 55-year-old Reinke visited several national parks this week.

Reinke was arrested Saturday by rangers at Grand Teton National Park for drunk and disorderly conduct, according to a press release. He was held overnight in the Teton County Jail. Officials say Reinke appeared to be intoxicated and was argumentative. Reinke was a passenger in the vehicle and was cited for not wearing a seat belt.

It's believed that shortly after that traffic stop, Reinke harassed and hazed that enormous bison that had slowed some traffic.

Once the Yellowstone rangers connected the dots and realized the man was connected to multiple infractions as well as the wildlife harassment case an assistant US attorney requested his bond be revoked.

A warrant was issued for Reinke's arrest Thursday. During this exchange, Reinke reportedly told rangers he had plans to travel to Glacier next.

One of those individuals was Reinke.

At 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, rangers stopped Reinke and his traveling companion Ted Wyrick at Lake Village in Yellowstone National Park. He was arrested on the spot and transported to Helena last night where he was handed off to Yellowstone rangers who took him to Mammoth Hot Springs and booked him into the Yellowstone Jail.

He was scheduled for a court appearance yesterday. It includes numerous disorderly conduct charges. After the disturbing video at Yellowstone surfaced, park officials contacted rangers at Glacier.

Court records say he was released on a $500 unsecured bond.

"We appreciate the collaboration of our fellow rangers in Glacier and Grand Teton national parks on this arrest", Wenk said.

In a video that has circulated widely on Facebook, Reinke can be seen following the bison as it crosses the road, getting its attention and taking a menacing stance resembling that of a bullfighter.
