A Park press release says on the morning of June 6, Kim Hancock, of Santa Rose, Calif., was in a group of people near Fountain Paint Pot in the Lower Geyser Basin.

A tourist who got too close to a male bison in Yellowstone National Park was gored when the animal charged her Wednesday.

Ranger responded and treated Hancock for a hip injury. She was then transported by ambulance to the Big Sky Medical Center in Big Sky, Montana, according to the release.

The incident, which is still under investigation, is the second time this year that a visitor to Yellowstone has been injured by a bison.

The latest attack at Yellowstone comes days after two people were attacked by elks in separate incidents.

Cameron Sholly, the Park Service director for the Midwest region, is said to be in consideration for Wenk's Yellowstone job.

Last month, a bison headbutted a 72-year-old woman, who came face-to-face with one of the hooved beasts along a trail near Old Faithful. Frank said the park can't say with certainty if the number of wildlife injuries has necessarily gone up or down in recent years.

The retiring head of Yellowstone National Parks accused the Trump administration of forcing him out early over squabbling with the Interior Department. Critics say numerous reassignments appear to be motivated by politics, sweeping aside those who disagree with the administration on issues such as climate change, wildlife management, and wilderness preservation.

The National Parks Conservation Association said diverse sides should be represented when it comes to places like Yellowstone. At one point, officials say, some people were within 15 feet of the animal.

"If you can't maintain these distances, turn around and find an alternate route", the park advised.
