- Description: So, glad I’m not a tree…
Bison along the side of the road usually aren’t enough reason for me to tap the brakes, but it was early and I figured, “Hey, why not kill some time with these guys?”
At first, they were just feeding, but then the gorging stopped and the tree rubbing began.
This guy in particular seemed to have more than just an itch to scratch! As you can see from the photo, he hit that tree like it had insulted his mother or something. Not sure if he was just being “playful”, scratching an itch, or marking his territory – all I know is that I’m glad I’m not that tree! Did you notice that crazy “Texas Chainsaw Massacare” look in his eye? Yikes!
