Yellowstone Visitor Again Gored by Bison

This is the second incident this week

A Pennsylvania woman visiting Yellowstone National Park with her daughter was gored by a bison in the second incident of its kind this week and the third in a month, park officials said.

The 71-year-old from West Chester, Pa., whose name the National Park Service has not released, was walking back to her vehicle near Storm Point at Yellowstone Lake on Wednesday when a bull bison charged, according to a news release.

"The woman and her daughter inadvertently approached the bison as they were returning to their vehicle at the trailhead, causing the bull bison to charge," the Park Service said on Thursday.
