Ohio Woman Gored by Bison at Yellowstone National Park

Despite clearly marked warnings, she approached the wild animal

A 25-year-old Grove City woman was gored and tossed into the air by a bison at Yellowstone National Park over the Memorial Day weekend.

The woman, who has not been identified, approached a bison Monday morning and got within 10 feet of the animal. Two other people were also within 25 yards of the same bison, according to a release from Yellowstone 

Yellowstone officials say wildlife animals can be dangerous when they are approached. Those who visit the park say to stay more than 25 yards away from all large animals like bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose and coyotes. People should stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves.
