Bison taunting man apprehended in Glacier NP

Bison taunting man apprehended in Glacier NP

A man who was almost gored after being caught on video taunting a bison in Yellowstone National Park has been arrested.

Rangers arrested 55-year-old Raymond Reinke, of Pendleton, Oregon, around 10:45 p.m. Thursday in Glacier National Park.

After his release, Reinke travelled to Yellowstone National Park. This incident was just one of several run-ins with the law Reinke experienced over the past week in national parks, according to a National Park Service press release. On July 28, he was first arrested by law enforcement rangers at Grand Teton National Park for a drunk and disorderly conduct incident. NPS said that Reinke spent the night in the Teton County Jail before being released on bond.

Reinke had told rangers that his plans were to travel to Glacier National Park. He appeared to be intoxicated and was argumentative, according to rangers. He was cited in that instance for failing to wear a seatbelt as a passenger.

It was after the traffic stop that Reinke gained global attention after other visitors posted videos on the bison-hazing incident.

Yellowstone rangers received several wildlife harassment reports from concerned visitors. "The video of the event surfaced after that citation had been issued". The request was granted, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Rangers identified that guest as - you guessed it - Raymond Reinke.

From there he moved to Yellowstone National Park.

The Yellowstone rangers then transported Reinke to Mammoth hot Srpngs and locked him up in Yellowstone Jail.

One count was for disturbing wildlife, two were alcohol-related, one was for interference, and one was for disorderly conduct.

In a video that has circulated widely on Facebook, Reinke can be seen following the bison as it crosses the road, getting its attention and taking a menacing stance resembling that of a bullfighter.

"From the park's perspective, this was absolutely egregious behavior", Morgan Warthin, Yellowstone public affairs officer, said. Last night, August 2, Glacier National Park rangers began looking for his vehicle. He is scheduled for a court appearance on August 3.

The rangers were unaware of the bond conditions from the incident in Grand Teton National Park.

While rangers were searching for Reinke's vehicle, officials responded to a call about an incident at the Many Glacier Hotel where two guests were reported to be arguing and creating a disturbance in the dining room.

He remains jailed pending a hearing next week and has requested a court-appointed attorney.
