FIRST PLACE: Yellowstone officials kill bison calf that was put in car
SECOND PLACE: Man survives two attacks by bear
THIRD PLACE: Man dies after falling into hot spring at Yellowstone

On May 9, two Yellowstone tourists thought a baby bison looked cold so they put it in the back of their SUV and drove it to a ranger station. Bad idea. Those bison are wild animals with heavy (and warm) fur coats. In this case, rangers were unable to reunite the calf with its herd after the somewhat well-intentioned car ride and it was euthanized. Best leave the animals alone.
