The short focal length in most phone cameras contributes to the problem by drawing visitors into unsafe distances, but the problem is the general public perception of the risk -- despite all the signs. If people were as wary of bison as they are of rattlesnakes there would be fewer incidents.

Fear of snakes is endemic, probably good because most people can't tell a constrictor from a venomous snake.  But plant eaters kill more people every year than carnivores do every 10 years.
