Bison gores woman in Yellowstone National Park after she gets too close
The woman sustained a puncture wound among other injuries, officials said.
A 25-year-old woman was gored by a bison in Yellowstone National Park on Monday morning, officials said.
A bison was walking near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, just north of the Old Faithful geyser
when a tourist approached it, coming within 10 feet.
The wild animal then gored the woman and tossed
her 10 feet into the air, according to a press release from the National Park Service.
The unnamed woman, who was visiting from Grove City, Ohio,
sustained a puncture wound among other injuries, the agency said.
She was transported via ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.
