Woman gored by bison in Yellowstone after crowd gets too close

She was reportedly in stable condition.

Kim Hancock, 59, of Santa Rosa, was in a crowd of people walking along a boardwalk at Fountain Paint Pot in the Lower Geyser Basin when the attack occurred, according to a statement from Yellowstone.

"When it crossed the boardwalk, the bison became agitated and charged the crowd, goring Hancock", park officials said, adding that the animal left the vicinity right after.

Yellowstone officials have renewed their urging for people to maintain a safe distance from wild animals in the park.

It was the latest in a string of injuries caused by wildlife in Yellowstone.

In May, a bison rammed and injured a woman in Yellowstone, On Sunday and again on Tuesday, a female elk with a calf injured two women near a Yellowstone hotel.

A herd of bison grazes in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park, Aug. 3, 2016. It butted her in the thigh and slightly injured the woman.

This is the second bison attack in the park this year. The NPS rule of thumb is, "If you cause an animal to move, you're too close", noting that it is "illegal to willfully remain near or approach wildlife, including birds, within any distance that disturbs or displaces the animal". One person was injured by bison in 2017, and there were five incidents in 2015, according to the National Park Service. Rangers advise staying at least 25 yards away from animals like bison and elk, the park said.

Park officials instructed visitors to give animals space, even near trails, boardwalks, parking lots and other developed areas.
