Elderly woman gored by bison trying to take photos

An elderly woman from California was gored by a bison on Thursday at Yellowstone National Park after getting within 10-feet of the wild animal to take photos.

“The series of events that led to the goring suggest the bison was threatened by being repeatedly approached to within 10 feet,” Yellowstone’s senior bison biologist Chris Geremia stated in a press release. “Bison are wild animals that respond to threats by displaying aggressive behaviors like pawing the ground, snorting, bobbing their head, bellowing, and raising their tail. If that doesn’t make the threat (in this instance it was a person) move away, a threatened bison may charge. To be safe around bison, stay at least 25 yards away, move away if they approach, and run away or find cover if they charge.”
The woman has not been identified, however she “sustained multiple goring wounds” and was flown to an Idaho hospital. The park continues to urge visitors to stay away from wildlife – a minimum of 25 yards from bison and elk and at least 100 yards away from bears or wolves. The woman’s condition has not been updated.
