NBC News reporter for Montana, Deion Broxton, was all set to shoot his segment. But then he spotted a herd of bison heading his way. And his hilarious reaction is just the laugh I needed today!
Deion Broxton was at Yellowstone National Park in Montana to film a news segment. He had his camera all set up and his microphone ready when something unexpected happened.

No sooner than the NBC News reporter started filming, he noticed a herd of bison headed in his direction. And his reaction is just so good!
As Deion cut his eyes to the approaching bison, he could have tried to continue with his report. But his facial expressions said it all, well before his mouth did!
“Oh no, I ain’t messing with you,” he remarks before striding off camera.

Deion grabs his camera and heads directly for the safety of his car. Which, by the way, is exactly what the Yellowstone National Park officials recommend.
“If you maintain a safe distance, wildlife will leave you alone,” Yellowstone National Park said in response to the funny video. “Our guess is that these bison weren’t acting aggressively, but were walking in Deion’s direction. He did EXACTLY what he should have done, which is maintain a safe distance by getting in his car.”
Hilarious Reaction Goes Viral
Once the NBC News reporter shared the hilarious video on Twitter, it went viral in no time. With everything going on in the world today, for so many of us, Deion Broxton provided a much-needed laugh.
The NBC News reporter’s funny reaction became so popular online, folks are starting to recognize him from the viral video rather than from his TV job!
I've been in Livingston for less than 15 minutes and I hear:
"Are you the bison guy?"
"Hey man, you're famous!"
I hope this means getting MOS will be easy for me going forward 😂
