Incredibly stupid, but I suppose they didn't have any bad intentions.

Other articles on the incident say they took the bison calf to park rangers, so it was hardly a kidnapping.

Or calf-napping? They did take it to the park rangers according to articles I saw. But still...really? No ill intention, but again...really? Tourists (foreign) not thinking.

It can challenge the imagination to come up with rational explanations for the idiotic behaviour of the human species at times....this would be one of those times.

Reminds me of a sign I saw on a pet bird cage. Inside, the motionless bird was hanging upside down by one foot.

"Please do not notify staff. I am not dead, sick or injured.
I just like to sleep this way."

At least the tourist's intentions were good, but Gringo's right, they were probably city people.

Yellowstone and other national parks are great places for people watching. If you're looking for stupid people, you won't have to wait long.
