*A Montana television reporter is going viral for his reaction to a herd of buffalo headed his way during a live shot.
Deion Broxton, with local NBC affiliate KTVM, was at Yellowstone National Park on Wednesday reporting on its temporary closure due to the coronavirus pandemic. He had rolled camera and was about to start reporting when he gave the look of “oh hayall naw” at something off camera.
“Oh my God. Oh my God,” Broxton said, eyes darting back and forth from his right to the camera.
Turns out it was a herd of buffalo. Approaching.
“Oh no, I ain’t messing with you,” he said as he walked out of the frame. “Oh no. Oh no, I’m not messing with you.”
He grabbed the still-recording camera and stashed it in the trunk of his car.

After he traveled a safe distance, he filmed the object of his fearful response.
