California woman gored by bison at Yellowstone National Park

A California woman was gored by a bison at Yellowstone National Park, after she approached the animal while attempting to take a photo.

The 72-year-old unnamed woman got within 10 feet of the bison “multiple times” while at her Bridge Bay Campground to take photos before it attacked, the National Park Services wrote in a press release.

The woman sustained “multiple goring wounds” and received immediate medical attention from park rangers before being flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center for further care.

This is not the first injury since the park reopened.

The incident happened June 25, less than six weeks after the park reopened to guests following shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The park is currently investigating, but Yellowstone’s senior bison biologist Chris Geremia is warning guests to “stay at least 25 yards away” from the wildlife, and to move, run away or find cover if they approach or charge.

“The series of events that led to the goring suggest the bison was threatened by being repeatedly approached to within 10 feet,” said Geremia 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.


All wild animals are starting to demand social justice now, the tourists better watch out.
