YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo.– A 25-year-old Grove City woman was gored and thrown into the air by a bison in Yellowstone National Park over Memorial Day weekend.

The woman, who has not been identified, approached a bison on Monday morning and came within 10 feet of the animal. Two other people were also within 25 yards of the same bison, according to a statement from Yellowstone.

As the bison approached a walk, the woman approached it. The bison then gored her and threw her 10 feet into the air.

The woman suffered a puncture wound and other injuries. She was taken to a medical center in Idaho. His condition was not immediately available.

Yellowstone officials say wild animals can be dangerous when approached. Those who visit the park say to stay more than 25 meters away from all large animals like bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes. People should stay at least 100 meters away from bears and wolves.

This was the first reported incident in 2022 where someone got too close to a bison and gored it.

Bison have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal and can run three times faster than humans.
