Finally, about 3 miles from the end of WY-585N , a car pulls out in front of me, I slow down, and the logging truck and trailer comes flying by us both at about 70 miles an hour. I know I have dodged a bullet, and we never see the logging truck again.

Hunters working together could spook bison, getting them to stampede over a hidden drop off. Running bison, with no hint about the change in the lay of the land, raced toward certain death. People waiting at the bottom of the jump butchered the animals after they fell.
