A woman this week was gored and launched at least 10 feet in the air at Yellowstone National Park, according to a press release.
The 25-year-old unidentified Ohio woman reportedly approached the animal and was within 10 feet of it before it charged at her.
According to the Park rules, visitors must remain at least 25 yards away from most animals.
The woman, who suffered a severe puncture wound and other injuries, was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
The victim’s condition is unknown.
“This is the first reported incident in 2022 of a visitor threatening a bison (getting too close to the animal) and the bison responding to the threat by goring the individual.” the Park said.
“Bison have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal. They are unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans.”
