A young woman from Ohio got too close to a bison in Yellowstone National Park and was gored and thrown ten feet into the air.

According to Wyoming News Now:

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - A bison has gored a 25-year-old woman in Yellowstone National Park.

A park statement says the bison was walking near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful, when the woman approached it Monday. She got within 10 feet before the animal gored her and tossed her 10 feet into the air.

The woman from Grove City, Ohio, sustained a puncture wound and other injuries.

Park emergency medical providers responded and transported her via ambulance to a hospital in Idaho.

Remember, when in the vicinity of bison or other wild animals in Yellowstone, keep a safe distance.

UPDATE (6/2/22):

Here's an update I am glad to pass on:

From K2Radio:

While initial reports stated that the woman had died as a result of her injuries, that does not appear to be the case.

NBC News first wrote that the woman had died but then corrected themselves to say that she had survived.

"A previous version of this article misstated the severity of the woman’s injuries," they wrote. "She survived being gored by a bison at Yellowstone. She was not killed."
