Bison crossing ahead. No, really a bison seems to use a bison crosswalk in Canada

Canadians really are polite rule-followers — right down to their wildlife.

Take for example this bison photographed while crossing the road at a bison crossing sign in Alberta.

Photographer Tim Osborne captured the image Sunday in Elk Island National Park, which is east of Edmonton.

“Nice to see that the Parks Canada staff have successfully trained the bison to use their marked crossings!” he posted on Twitter.

Parks staff were amused and pleased.

Osborne too was tickled pink.

The photo is spawning all kinds of jokes about exactly who is in charge in the park.

It was well worth the Sunday drive to Elk Island on a frigid day.

You can see more of his images from the weekend visit.

And don’t worry. He wasn’t getting too close to the potentially dangerous animals. Osborne was shooting with a telephoto lens.

A few more bison shots from Elk Island this morning.
