Visitors of Elk Island National Park are being reminded to stay a safe distance away from bison.
Even though the bison look gentle, they are dangerous and unpredictable animals that can cause serious injuries or death.
"There's tons of opportunity to see bison, but with that comes responsibility of viewing these animals safely," said Catharine Brazeau, communications officer at Elk Island National Park. "The biggest thing that we suggest to people is to keep a safe distance from these animals."
Park visitors are encouraged to stay at least 100 metres away from bison at all times, even when in a vehicle.
As the winter approaches, bison will start to get a bit more active as they continue to search for that remaining green grass.
If you're walking and see a bison, their tail is a good indicator of distress, if the tail is raised they are alarmed and could charge.
