Giddy Up! Cowboy Outruns Cop Atop Bison
All I'm saying is, you don't see this sort of thing every day.
A guy outrunning cops on the back of a saddled bison.
Well, okay, this video looks made up and produced.
Actually, poorly produced.
But so what?
How often do you get to see a guy outrun cops on a saddle bison?
Okay then so let's have a look at the video.
Buffalo Outruns Cop by Bar JL Horse Training.
Actually, the cop does pull him over, easily.
Bison don't like to run for very long.
So the animal just kind of gave up and the cop overtook him.
The good news is that the cop gave the bison and rider a break.
"Just keep it under 50mph," said the cop. "And maybe get a speedometer put on that thing."
Bison can be ridden if you teach them from an early age.
Don't think for a moment you can go to Yellowstone and just throw a saddle on one.
That would not end well.
Here is a guy riding a bison to the grocery store, because, sure, why not?
Then there is the song about a guy on a buffalo.
This gets WEIRD!
Based on a 1978 movie, that I'm sure was a massive flop, the story was very loosely based on his life called "Buffalo Rider."
Here's a link to the trailer. (spoiler: there are a lot of shots of a guy riding a buffalo..)
Jomo Edwards leads a band called The Possum Posse. Not sure how but he found the movie, but he found it and was inspired.
Writing songs that matched the action in the movie, Edwards started posting videos aptly titled, "Guy on a Buffalo"
Below is episode 1 in the series.
Please note: we at Wake Up Wyoming do not condone the riding of buffalo.
