UPDATE: Man who harassed bison gets jail time

A 55-year-old Oregon man has been sentenced to more than two months in jail after pleading guilty to misconduct in two national parks including an incident captured on video where he stopped traffic to harass a bison.

Raymond Reinke’s crimes made headlines after a video was shot of him in traffic interacting with the bison.

The harassment of the bison was just a string of issues the Pendleton, Oregon man had across a number of national parks.

ABC Fox Montana reports Magistrate Judge Mark Carman sentenced him to 60 days in jail for harassing wildlife, 60 days for interfering with law enforcement and 10 days for disorderly conduct. He was given credit for 21 days served.

Reinke was arrested Aug. 3 in Glacier National Park after being cited for misconduct in Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.
