1209_0037 Dangerous fun

Two children running carefree up a grassy hill, with a Bison herd on top. The parents were present, out of the frame and to the right, waving at them to hurry up. Stupid and dangerous behaviour, and the kids are not at fault. Circling the herd - the parents were in the process of doing this by getting so far ahead - could panic them, causing a stampede that might trample their children. And this area has a lot of rattlesnakes; one person was bitten very near this spot earlier in the summer. It is NOT a place for children to run and play!!!
