NBC Montana Reporter’s Viral Video Inspires Yellowstone Safety Posters

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

NBC Montana reporter Deion Broxton, whose outtake of his running from bison in Yellowstone National Park went viral last week, is now the inspiration for a new safety poster at the park.

“Oh my God, oh my God, oh no. I ain’t messing with you,” Broxton said into the TV camera as he quickly packed his gear into his car, leaving the camera rolling.

That reaction inspired the poster below.


“Thanks again to Deion Broxton and NBC Montana for last week’s viral video. As a response, our colleagues at National Park Service created this wildlife safety poster,” Yellowstone National Park posted on Facebook.

Yellowstone says Broxton did the right thing leaving the scene because bison can be unpredictable.

“Bison have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal. Bison are unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans. Always stay at least 25 yards away from bison.”

Broxton’s video currently has 11 million views.
