Reporter for NBC Montana Deion Broxton was midway through a report when he noticed a herd of bison heading his way in Yellowstone National Park, and did what any sensible person would do.

He made a very speedy exit.

Luckily due to his quick thinking, Broxton got away safely and lived to tell the tale – well, shoot the footage – of the bison.

People were quick to to point out advice apparently from Yellowstone National Park on keeping a social distance bison, which to his credit, Broxton did.

There are approximately 3,000 wild bison in Yellowstone National Park, with the males weighing up to a tonne and standing six feet tall.

And in case you don’t believe the very real threat that bison pose to human safety, check this out.

Remember to keep your distance y'all.
