Woman GORED By Bison At Yellowstone Park

A woman has been gored by a bison at a national park in the US. Kim Hancock, 59, had been with a group of tourists at the famous Yellowstone National Park on Wednesday when she got too close to the animal, park officials said. She had been part of a crowd that got to within 10 yards of the animal while making their way along a boardwalk. The bull bison "became agitated and charged the crowd before immediately leaving the area". Ms Hancock, from Santa Rosa, California, was taken to a hospital in Montana with a hip injury. She was reportedly in a good condition. This is the second bison attack in the park this year. On 1 May, a woman from Idaho was slightly injured as she walked on a trail in the park. The two women were among four people injured by various types of wildlife in the park in just over a month. Another two women were injured by elks over a three-day period - and one of them was seriously hurt. Source
