He claimed one of the gigantic beasts wouldn't stop staring at him while slowly approaching.
A reporter in Montana became the new viral sensation after his priceless reaction to an approaching herd of bison.
Trying to film a segment for KTVM-NBC on coronavirus-related closures at Yellowstone Park on Wednesday, Deion Broxton spotted the majestic beasts out of the corner of his eye and decided they were a little too close for comfort.
"Oh, my god. Oh my god," he said while his eyes kept darting over to check on the gigantic animals. After appearing to debate whether or not to start his monologue, Broxton wisely chose to abort the mission.
"They always say, 'Stay at least 25 yards away from mammals,'" Broxton said during an interview with The Baltimore Sun. "But that damn bison broke the 25-yard barrier and I was like, 'Uhhh, I'm not dealing with this!'"
Broxton told the publication there were seven bison grazing near him when he noticed one started to stare at him before slowly making his way over to the reporter.
And that was enough for Broxton to peace out.
Deion is 24k gold. He's my new pandemic hero because he finally got me to LAUGH about something this week. Glad he didn't get trampled, ha ha ha ha. Love this guy!
