Terrifying moment woman tries to outrun bison and then ‘plays dead’ when she trips and falls

A WOMAN visiting Yellowstone National Park was captured on video being chased by a bison and apparently saving herself by playing dead.

In bystander footage taken on Friday, the woman and another visitor can at first be seen running from a bison that charged them before the woman trips.

It’s not clear whether the bison was provoked or charged unprompted

Other bystanders can be heard yelling, “play dead! Play dead!”

The oncoming bison stood over the woman as she lay motionless.

A moment later it turned and galloped off, leaving her unharmed.

Cloie Musumecci, the bystander who captured the footage, told MTN News that the incident took place at Nez Perce Creek.

The creek lies in Wyoming, as does the vast majority of the park.

Musumecci said that the unidentified woman “is a Montana local so she knew to play dead in that situation,” according to MTN News.

A full-grown bison can easily reach one ton in weight, but the woman escaped the close encounter “without a scratch,” according to Musumecci.


Visitors to Yellowstone are instructed to keep a distance of at least 25 yards from bison and similar prey mammals such as elk and bighorn sheep.

It’s unclear whether the woman in the video had wandered too close to the bison that charged her.

In June, a 72-year-old woman visiting Yellowstone was gored by a bison multiple times after approaching within 10 feet while taking photos.
