Description: Two tourists at Yellowstone National Park recently tried to rescue a baby bison that they thought looked cold. They loaded the calf into their SUV and drove it to a ranger station. When park rangers tried to reunite the calf with its herd, it was rejected and it later had to be euthanized. This story is another example of emotion trumping rational thought, as people act on sentiment and inadvertently make a bad situation worse. We’re seeing this daily as emotional appeals about a person’s “feelings” are considered more important than the objective truths about human sexuality. We’ll talk about it with Carrie Gress.
