Bison Attack a Woman
In the United States, a raging bison threw a 25-year-old lady 10 feet into the air. Local officials said she was gored by the animal in Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park on Monday. The woman was rushed to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Grove City, Ohio, but her condition remained unknown.
After approaching within 10 feet (3 meters) of the bison, she suffered a puncture wound and ‘other injuries,’ according to park officials. When the woman approached the bison, it was walking near a boardwalk in Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful.
Bison are unpredictable, have wounded more people in Yellowstone than any other animal, and can sprint three times faster than humans, according to the park. Visitors must stay at least 25 yards (23 meters) away from bison, according to park regulations.
However, two other people were within 25 yards of the same animal at the time of the occurrence, according to the statement. ‘Wildlife in Yellowstone National Park is wild, and approaching them can be dangerous,’ it explained.

Emergency care personnel from Park responded to the event and transferred her to an Idaho hospital by ambulance. The event is the first reported bison goring this year, according to Yellowstone officials.
