After everything ended, the man reportedly walked to the parking lot. A park ranger met him there and arrested him, according to WTHR-13. He was charged with violations, including being off-trail in a thermal area.

He has been released on bond.

Not the first time: Viral Yellowstone videos are commonplace these days.

  • My Deseret News colleague Payton Davis reported last week that visitors to Yellowstone watched an elk fight another elk before one of the animals approached a man and knocked him down to the ground.
