Video: Wyoming bison knock down government roadblock

Apparently, Wyoming bison don't care for the closure of our public lands either.

Would-be tourists to our national parks, monuments and refuges have met with closed gates and huge disappointment over the past 16 days of the government shutdown. And now they can give a hand of applause to these bison who took it upon themselves to knock down a roadblock outside Kelly, Wyoming, near Grand Teton National Park. 

According to Outside Magazine, several bystanders witnessed the event, one of whom recorded the knock-down. 

Of course we would like the road blocks to come down the right way--with Congress ending the shutdown and reopening our parks and public lands--but the sentiment is still appreciated.
