A woman, identified as Kim Hancock, 59, of Santa Rosa, California was attacked by a bison Tuesday morning while walking along a boardwalk in Yellowstone's Lower Geyser Basin.

“Hancock and a crowd of people approached within ten yards of the bison while walking along a boardwalk. At one point, people were closer than 15 feet from the bison. When it crossed the boardwalk, the bison became agitated and charged the crowd, goring Hancock,” officials say.

Hancock was transported to Big Sky Medical Center, apparently in good condition. Sadly this is just one of several animal encounters within the park this month that have resulted in human injury.
