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 say 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.
On Monday, a 34-year-old Colorado man got too close to a bison and was thrown as he grabbed a child. An Ohio woman was gored in May.
Park officials say 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.
