Bison RAMPAGE – Woman Injured in Terrifying Encounter

( – On Monday morning, a woman from Arizona was attacked by a bison at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

While walking with a companion, a 47-year-old woman encountered two bison near the cabins on the north shore at the northern tip of Wyoming. When they tried to walk away, one of the bison charged at the woman, injuring her chest and abdomen. She was flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

Officials said it’s not clear how close the woman was to the bison, but reports suggest she attempted to leave the area after spotting the massive animal.

On Saturday, July 15, another bison harmed a Minnesota woman in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, located in far western North Dakota near the state’s border with eastern Montana. She received severe injuries to her abdomen and foot. This was the second attack in three days.

According to reports, bison have injured more people than any other animal in Yellowstone. The largest land animal in the US has unpredictable personalities and can run up to three times faster than people.

They are typically more aggressive during mating season, which goes from June to September, with high levels of activity between July and August. It is not uncommon to see two frisky males fighting and stirring up clouds of dust.

Almost six thousand bison occupy Yellowstone. Most attacks happen when tourists try to get photos with the animal, which can weigh up to 2,000 pounds and stand six feet tall.

Bison attacks at the park caused 56 injuries and two fatalities between 1978 and 1992. Between 2000 and 2015, there were a reported 25 injuries.

It’s recommended by park officials to keep a distance of at least 25 yards from large mammals, such as bison and sheep, and 100 yards from predators, such as wolves and bears. Wildlife can be dangerous, and it’s not uncommon for them to attack.
