A bison is roaming the White Earth area in northwestern Minnesota, and people are being asked not to approach it.
A post on the White Earth Nation Facebook page on Tuesday asks people not to "approach or interact with a roaming buffalo," which was reported in the area.
If someone spots the bison, they're asked to call their local law enforcement agency and report the location where they saw the animal.
"They are doing their best to make sure the buffalo is returned safely to its home," the post said.
Bison can be dangerous when approached. The National Park Service says the animals are "unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans." It recommends you always stay more than 25 yards away from a bison.
In fact, bison have injured more people in Yellowstone National Park than any other animal, the park service said. According to a 2000 study, the bison in Yellowstone are more dangerous than its bears — the study found bison had charged people 81 times over 22 years, killing two people. The park's grizzly bears had injured 30 people and killed two.
In June 2020, a bison gored a 72-year-old woman after she got too close to the animal in order to take a photo, with the park service noting the woman approached within 10 feet of the animal multiple times.
