The 44-year-old said: ‘The bison was in a playful mood and when the fox showed up, he decided he was going to chase him just for fun.

‘The fox knew it was some sort of a game and he never left the area.

‘The bison would see him again and run towards him. It went on like this for a good 10 minutes.

‘The bison never really had any intention to hurt the fox and the fox knew it.

‘I was laughing throughout the chase because I knew it was mostly mischief and play.

‘It’s rare to catch interspecies play on film.

‘These two species do not compete and are not a threat to each other or to each other’s young, I have not witnessed them engage in interspecies play before though.’

The two species do not compete and are not a threat to each other or to each other's young, so the game of chase was harmless
