Some well-intentioned, but ill-informed tourists have park rangers at Yellowstone National Park issuing fresh warnings to not touch wildlife.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:

Fearing that a baby bison was cold and lost, some visitors to Yellowstone National Park last week loaded the animal into their SUV and brought it to stunned park rangers who immediately returned the calf to its herd and after several tries failed to reunite the baby bison with its mother and were late forced to euthanize the animal.

The visitors were ticketed for touching park wildlife. Five tourists were seriously hurt last year after getting too close to a bison herd. Park rules require visitors to stay at least 25 yards away from all wildlife and 100 yards away from bears and wolves.
