I was within about 15m of this Bison at Yellowstone National Park a week or so ago (hiding behind a log in the snow). That's about as close as I'd be comfortable getting. These guys might look cuddly but I don't think they'd be as nice as they look if they felt threatened.

It was amazing being so close though, I sat there for about 20 mins just watching him and a mate just wander around the meadow.
