Yellowstone National Park – On June 29, a 71-year-old Pennsylvania woman was gored by a bison after she and her daughter inadvertently got too close to the animal near Storm Point at Yellowstone Lake.
The incident, which left the woman with non-life-threatening injuries, comes just two days after a Colorado man was gored by a bison on a boardwalk near Giant Geyser at Old Faithful, and it is the third bison attack in 2022.
The National Park Service reminds the public that bison are unpredictable and they can run three times faster than humans. The agency advises the public to:
The last two bison attacks remain under investigation and the park service has no further information.
