Bay Area Woman Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park

A bison has gored a woman, the third animal attack in Yellowstone National Park this week.

On 1 May, a woman from Idaho was slightly injured as she walked on a trail in the park.

Hancock, who suffered a hip injury, was transported by paramedic ambulance to the Big Sky Medical Center, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.

Authorities in Yellowstone are reporting a visitor was injured yesterday by a bison at Fountain Paint Pots in the Lower Geyser Basin. Some of the visitors got even closer, agitating the bison and provoking it to cross the boardwalk and charge into Hancock.

Park officials say some in the crowd came within 15 feet (4.6 meters) of the bison when the safe distance is at least 75 feet (23 meters).

The incident comes on the heels of two elk attacks earlier this month, Yellowstone officials previously said.

Much of the answer lies in who the owner, Bill Foley, hired as the club's first general manager in the summer of 2016. Devante Smith-Pelly then tied the score again, netting the Caps their third goal in the middle of the third period.

'Building blocks of life' found on Mars
Organic molecules are the building blocks of life, though they can also be produced by chemical reactions unrelated to life. About 3.5 billion years ago, research suggests, this pockmark on the Martian surface was brimming with water.

Two women were injured in separate attacks by a cow elk near the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel Sunday and Tuesday.

Safety tips from Yellowstone park officials can be found here. The woman tried to back away, but the elk pursued her and struck her in the head and torso.

This is the second bison attack in the park this year. There was also one previous year and five in 2015. People should stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards away from all other animals, including bison and elk, officials said.

Yellowstone warned that animals in the park are "wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be".

'Give animals space when they're near trails, boardwalks, parking lots, or in developed areas'.
