A bison gores a woman in Yellowstone

A bison gored a tourist at Yellowstone National Park on Monday after getting too close to the animal.

The bison threw the woman 10 feet in the air. She suffered a puncture wound and other injuries, according to the park.

Park doctors responded immediately and took her by ambulance to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

The woman, 25, from Grove City, Oregon, had moved within 10 feet of the bison, the park said in a statement. Park regulations require people to stay more than 25 meters from bison.

The goring happened near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, just north of Oil Faithful. The woman was on the walk at the time.

The incident, the first gored this year, is still under investigation, the park said.

Bison injure more people in Yellowstone than any other animal, the park said.
