Bison gores California woman at Yellowstone National Park, officials say

Authorities in Yellowstone are reporting a visitor was injured yesterday by a bison at Fountain Paint Pots in the Lower Geyser Basin.

Hancock and a crowd of people approached within 10 yards of the bison while walking along a boardwalk.

A woman in Yellowstone National Park was gored by a bison on Wednesday after her group came too close to the animal, park authorities said.

The bison - which can weigh up to 2,000lb - got agitated and crossed the boardwalk, charging the crowd and goring Hancock. The bison immediately left the area. Hancock received a hip injury as a result of the attack and was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Big Sky, Montana, according to the release. She's in good condition, officials said Thursday.

In a little over a month, four people have been injured by wildlife in Yellowstone. The woman was airlifted to a nearby trauma center to be treated for severe injuries.

The second visitor in three days was hurt in an accidental encounter with a cow elk Tuesday at Yellowstone National Park.

"It's very common for cow elk to aggressively defend newborn calves and hide them near buildings and cars", the Park Service said. There was one incident in 2017 and five in 2015. The safe distance is at least 75 feet.

It was the third animal attack this week for the park. "When an animal is near a trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space".

A bison rammed and slightly injured a woman in Yellowstone in early May. "If you can't maintain these distances, turn around and find an alternate route".
