SOME PEOPLE JUST REFUSE TO OBEY THE RULES

  • The woman approached the bison at Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful
  • She got within 10-feet of the animal, not respecting the park’s 25-yard rule
  • Medics rushed the woman to a hospital in Idaho
  • Park officials said the incident is the first reported bison goring in this year
  • Bison have injured more people at the park more than any other animal, with one or two incidents reported each year

A bison gored and killed a 25-year-old woman in Yellowstone National Park on Monday, after she approached the animal despite explicit warning signs in the area instructing visitors to stay at least 25-yards away from dangerous wildlife.

The bison was walking near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful, when the out-of-state visitor approached it, according to a park statement.

She got within 10-feet (three meters) before the animal impaled her with its horn and tossed her 10 feet into the air.

The woman later died according to the park officials
