Bison attacks woman at Yellowstone National Park

A visitor to Yellowstone National Park in the US state of Wyoming has become the second person in just three days to be attacked by a wild bison. The attack comes after footage emerged on Tuesday showing another bison at the park charging at and goring a visitor. Yellowstone officials have repeatedly warned that the bull bison living at the park are wild and can be dangerous when approached. Park officials say bisons, which can travel at speeds of up to 30mph, have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal. In advice issued to visitors, park rangers suggest staying at least 75ft away from wild bison at all times and, if coming into contact with the animal is unavoidable, to "Turn around and go the other way to avoid interacting with a wild animal in proximity".
