The motorist got out of his vehicle and taunted the animal after it caused traffic to slow down in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. "I can't watch it", she's heard exclaiming in the video.

On Thursday night, rangers at Glacier National Park apprehended a suspect: Raymond Reinke, 55, of Pendleton, Ore.

The bison first tried to just ignore the person. The incident happened as the bison was crossing a road in the park Tuesday. When it crossed the boardwalk, the bison became agitated and charged the crowd, goring Hancock. The video was posted by bystander Lindsey Jones on Wednesday, and has since been viewed more than 4 million times. This time, the bison charges a bit faster and with his horns down - ready to strike.
