2 Days After Opening, Woman Is Attacked By Bison in Yellowstone

View this post on Instagram

News Release: Female visitor injured after approaching bison. On the afternoon of May 20, 2020, a female visitor was knocked to the ground and injured by a bison in the Old Faithful Upper Geyser Basin after approaching the animal too closely (inside 25 yards). Park emergency medical providers responded to the incident immediately. She was assessed and refused transport to a medical facility. The incident remains under investigation, and there is no additional information to share. This is the first incident of a bison injuring a visitor in 2020. Animals in Yellowstone National Park are wild and unpredictable. When an animal is near a trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space. Stay 25 yards (23 m) away from all large animals - bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes and at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves. If need be, turn around and go the other way to avoid interacting with a wild animal in close proximity.

Yellowstone National Park re-opened this past Monday, much to the fanfare of tourists who flocked from all across the country to see its natural beauty. Crowds formed at entrances, social distancing guidelines seemed to go out the window at places like Old Faithful, and unfortunately but somewhat unsurprisingly, a tourist came too close to a bison and was promptly charged. She was assessed by first responders but refused medical transport or care.
