People should always pay attention to the warnings. For some reason, some people think that bison are just big cows. They are extremely dangerous and fast.

Ten feet.  Was she using a macro lens?  Let me guess, a smartphone  :)

Many wildife have a certain threshold distance you can not cross before they start to feel uncomfortable and the survival instinct kicks in.  Ten feet is within goring distance.  Even 15 feet.  I would imagine at 30 feet you'd be geting dirty 'back-off' looks.  I've gotten those looks from moose from even further back than that.

Well, maybe I am an optimist but I would like to believe this lady may use this opportunity as a learning experience and not do it again. However, the realist in me will not bet money betting money she will not do it again. ;-)
