2nd visitor in 3 days gored by Yellowstone park bison

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) – For the second time in three days, a visitor to Yellowstone National Park has been gored by a bison.

Park officials said a 71-year-old woman from West Chester, Pennsylvania and her daughter inadvertently approached the bison on Wednesday as they were returning to the vehicle at the head of Yellowstone Lake Road.

The bison attacked a 71-year-old man who was taken by ambulance to Cody Hospital in Wyoming.

On Monday, a 34-year-old man from Colorado got too close to a bison and was thrown while catching a child. An Ohio woman was gored in May.

Park officials said the bison are unpredictable and visitors should be more than 25 feet away. They can run three times faster than humans, according to the Park Service.
