I always amazes me how close people get to wild animals just to get a good picture.

avatar Yellowstone Visitor Injured In Encounter With Bison

A Taiwanese girl sustained serious but not life threatening injuries in an encounter with a bison in the Old Faithful area on Friday, May 16th. Shortly after noon, the 16-year-old exchange student was visiting Upper Geyser Basin with her host family. While hiking near Old Faithful Geyser, the family joined a group of people watching a bison grazing adjacent to the trail. According to firsthand reports, the group was somewhere between three and six feet from the bison. The girl turned her back to the bison to have her picture taken when the bison lifted its head, took a couple steps and gored her.

When responding rangers arrived on scene, there was a group of people fewer than ten feet from the grazing bison. The rangers, with assistance from bystanders, moved the girl a safe distance from the bison. The girl was transported to the Old Faithful Clinic, treated and then flown to a hospital by helicopter ambulance for further medical treatment.
