  • Local bison does his best to ignore naked dude in front of him

Update: We found a video of the drunken bison teaser, who was reportedly wearing a long cape with nothing underneath at the time of his arrest. Watch below.

Sunday's Bay to Breakers footrace brought out the usual miscreants -- drunks, public urinators, and of course drug users.

And then there was the naked guy who was busted taunting the city's bison. According to Officer Albie Esparza, an unidentified man hopped over the bison paddock at Golden Gate Park and began "taunting them."

No word on what kind of teasing took place, but from what we're reading on Twitter, the ungulates were not feeling threatened.

Sadly, we have no photo of this scene to illustrate the story. Just use your imagination. Update: Here's the video:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
