The National Parks Service is reporting that the second bison goring of the year has occurred after 62-year-old Australian man sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries after getting within 3 to 5 feet of the bison, that was lying in the grass, to pose for a picture. The victim was tossed in the air several times by the bison and was found about 100 yards from the bison when emergency crews arrived.
It was only a couple weeks ago that we reported that a 16 year old Taiwanese female exchange student sustained serious, but not life threatening injuries resulting from an encounter with a bison in Yellowstone National Park while posing for a picture in front of a Bison.
What’s the takeaway? STAY AWAY FROM WILD ANIMALS. Especially big ones with horns.
