Man caught taunting bison in Yellowstone National Park pleads not guilty

Posted: Updated:

MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo.- The Oregon man who was shown on a viral video taunting a bison in Yellowstone National Park pleaded not guilty to the charges Wednesday in a Wyoming federal court.

Raymond T. Reinke, 55 of Pendleton, Ore., faces five charges of being under the influence of alcohol to endanger others, interference and resistance, unreasonable noise, open container of alcohol in a vehicle and disturbing wildlife.

Reinke was arrested Aug. 2 in Glacier National Park after he was identified in the video and had been on a tour of national parks in the region. Authorities said he had been arrested in Grand Teton National Park July 28 on drunken and disorderly conduct and spent the night in jail.

Three days later, he was stopped in Yellowstone Park and cited as a passenger failing to wear his seat belt. Authorities believe he left his car to taunt the bison after that.

Reinke is scheduled for trial Aug. 23. U.S. U.S. District Judge Mark Carman of Wyoming revoked Reinke's bond from Grand Teton and ordered he remain in jail until trial.
