Bison gores woman inside Yellowstone National Park

The 47-year-old Arizona woman was walking in a field in front of the Lake Lodge Cabins on the north shore of Lake Yellowstone with another individual when the incident happened, according to officials from Yellowstone National Park.

According to officials, the tourists observed two bison, and when they turned to leave the area, one of the animals came at them and gored the woman.

According to park officials, the woman was transported by medical helicopter to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center after suffering serious injuries to her stomach and chest. Regarding her condition, no further details were disclosed.

The visitors to the national park were not sure how close the bison was at the time of the attack.

Stay away, stay safe According to the National Park Service, allowing animals plenty of space to roam around is the best approach to ensure your safety when watching wildlife.

According to the NPS, you must maintain a minimum distance of 25 yards from wildlife and 100 yards from predators such as wolves and bears when visiting numerous parks.

The NPS notes that bison can grow agitated more quickly during mating season, which spans from mid-July to mid-August. Visitors are advised to exercise particular caution and give them more space during that time.

  1. I’m very sorry that this woman is seriously hurt and hopefully she has a full recovery. I read she was walking away but apparently she too close to begin with. These are wild animals and need to respect who they are! It seems to be a daily story on Google where people are invading the wild animals.

    There has to be something Yellowstone needs to do by banning people from the parks and heafty fines. It’s sad to think they think that they are above the rules. 😭😭

  2. I hope they didn’t destroy the bison.
    They’re constantly being harassed by stupid people & this one just had enough.
    Hope the woman & the animal are OK.

  3. We are in there space n should respect them n observe from far away or from indoors. I grew up in Yellowstone national park n never had any problems but I was also taught to respect them n there home. They are wild animals. Get smart people.

  4. You can’t fix stupid but a wild animal might re.ind people to think twice when they are in the wild areas of our country.⁰

  5. The sad thing is that the bison will have to pay for people’s stupidity.
    People need to learn to just look and enjoy God’s creatures and go on so that someone else can enjoy..

  6. I’m so sorry for the lady. She is suffering no doubt
    Alot of visitors have been injured…but they either don’t know those animals are wild and.if the rutting now…they are not.nicr. prayers
