Woman gored by bison in Yellowstone after crowd gets too close

A woman has been gored by a bison at a national park in the US.

At one point, people were closer than 15 feet to the bull, officials said.

Hancock was wounded in her hip and brought to a Montana hospital "in good condition", officials said.

Kim Hancock was walking with a group of people along a boardwalk when the bison approached them in Lower Geyser Basin, according to park officials.

The bison - which can weigh up to 2,000lb - got agitated and crossed the boardwalk, charging the crowd and goring Hancock.

The two women were among four people injured by various types of wildlife in the park in just over a month.

In an interview to CNN-News18, Reham Khan alleged that sexual favours were used to get political positions within PTI ranks. In the autobiography, Khawaja is accused of having an illicit affair with Imran and having full control over him.

This incident remains under investigation. In 2017, there was only one incident at Yellowstone of a visitor being injured by a bison while 2015 saw five such incidents.

It was the third animal attack this week for the park. "Animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be", park officials said in the news release.

In early May, 72-year-old Virginia Junk of Boise, Idaho, was rammed by a bison and pushed off a trail.

Yellowstone requires that visitors stay at least 25 yards away from bison and elk and 100 yards away from bears and wolves. An elk also kicked a different woman's head Sunday, but the park service said it was unknown if the same elk were responsible.
