Bison gores Yellowstone visitor

Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk at the World War II Memorial on the Mall in Washington in 2015

Kim Hancock, 59, of Santa Rosa, was in a crowd of people walking along a boardwalk at Fountain Paint Pot in the Lower Geyser Basin when the attack occurred, according to a statement from Yellowstone. Some people got as close as 15 feet from the animal. Some of the visitors got even closer, agitating the bison and provoking it to cross the boardwalk and charge into Hancock.

This is the second incident of a bison injuring a person in Yellowstone in 2018.

Hancock suffered a hip injury and was driven in an ambulance to Big Sky Medical Center in Big Sky, Montana.

Earlier this week, two women were attacked by female elk protecting their calves, according to USA Today. Warthin was unclear on whether she needed to be carried out on a stretcher or was able to walk off, but she reported that the park visitor was "in good condition". Frank said the park can't say with certainty if the number of wildlife injuries has necessarily gone up or down in recent years.

Safety tips from Yellowstone park officials can be found here. "If you can't maintain these distances, turn around and find an alternate route".

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's office did not respond with a comment for this story but in a letter obtained by the Mountain West News Bureau, Interior Department officials said they are re-assigning Wenk to oversee National Parks in the D.C. metro area.
