A 72-year-old California woman was gored by a bison in Yellowstone National Park, a news release from the park said. Hey, these things happen.
The woman approached the bison to take a picture and got within 10 feet of it multiple times before it gored her on June 25, according to the release. Karen was really just asking for it.
She sustained multiple goring wounds and was treated by rangers before being flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center for further treatment. Wanna bet she tries to sue?
The news release said the woman approached the bison several times near her campsite at Bridge Bay Campground in northwest Wyoming before the bison charged.
“The series of events that led to the goring suggest the bison was threatened by being repeatedly approached to within 10 feet,” Yellowstone’s senior bison biologist Chris Geremia said in the release. Some people just can’t be taught something until it’s too late.
