Neilson and his wife were camping over the Victoria Day long weekend in Elk Island National Park, a lake-dotted swath of prairie wilderness just 35 kilometers east of Edmonton that boasts a healthy population of once-threatened American bison. Neilson had been out for a morning run along a park road when he spotted the animal grazing roughly 40 metres away from him.
