Bison fights shutdown, topples feds’ barricade (video)
First Published Oct 15 2013 03:12 pm • Last Updated Oct 15 2013 03:39 pm

When it comes to the government shutdown, even the animals are now mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

In the video above, a bison confronts, then topples, a government barricade a mile north of Kelly, Wyo. The video was published last week by WyoShooter308 and had nearly 100,000 views by Tuesday afternoon.

When I was in Springdale last week covering the shutdown’s impact on Utah I heard that some determined hikers were sneaking into national parks despite closures. In response, rangers were issuing warnings and taking pictures of the intruders.

However, if the shutdown doesn’t end soon, those rangers are going to be even busier trying to quell the coming animal uprising.
