Yellowstone superintendent says Trump administration is replacing him

Kim Hancock, 59, of Santa Rosa, Calif., stood within ten yards from the bull bison when the angered creature charged.

A bison attacked a California woman at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, sending her to the hospital Wednesday, park officials said. A Bay Area woman was gored by a bison during a visit to Yellowstone National Park, the fourth animal attack in the park in just over a month and the third this week.

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

This is also the second time a park visitor has been injured by a bison this year.

This incident is being investigated by Park staff; there is no word yet on whether the woman will be cited.

It was the latest in a string of injuries caused by wildlife in Yellowstone. Always stay at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 m) away from all other animals, including bison and elk. In 2017, there was only one incident at Yellowstone of a visitor being injured by a bison while 2015 saw five such incidents. Park officials could not say whether it was the same elk.

"Animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be", officials wrote. "When an animal is near a trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space".

Earlier this week, two women were attacked by female elk protecting their calves, according to USA Today.
