The following is a good reason why.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported:
A72-year-old woman from California was gored by a bison in Yellowstone National Park after approaching the animal multiple times to take its photo.
The woman, who moved to within 10 feet to take the picture, sustained multiple wounds Thursday evening and was flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, the park said in an announcement. Rangers first provided her with immediate medical care. The incident happened at her Bridge Bay Campground campsite.
I have taken many photos of bison during visits to Yellowstone National Park, all have been through telephoto lenses.
