YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — For the second time in three days, a visitor to Yellowstone National Park has been gored by a bison.
Park officials said a 71-year-old woman from West Chester, Pennsylvania, and her daughter inadvertently approached the bison Wednesday as they were returning to their vehicle at a Yellowstone Lake trailhead.
The bison attacked the 71-year-old, who was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Cody, Wyoming.
Park officials said bison are unpredictable and visitors should stay more than 25 yards away. They can run three times faster than humans, according to the Park Service.
