Bison injures female in Yellowstone Park

Bison injures female in Yellowstone Park”

A woman was injured by a bison at Yellowstone on Wednesday - just two days after the national park reopened to tourists amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The extent of her injuries was not known.

"Wyoming has lifted out-of-state travel restrictions and has requested the state's entrances open the week of May 18", the release said. When an animal is near a trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, visitors must give it space.

Park officials remind all visitors to stay beyond 25 yards of all large animals- bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes- and at least 100 yards from bears and wolves.

Park emergency providers responded to the incident immediately.

The park did not release the woman's name.

"A female visitor was knocked to the ground and injured by a bison", the National Park Service said in a statement.

On Monday, Yellowstone National Park entered its first phase of reopening, weeks after its March 24 closure due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The park is working closely with states and counties to reopen the remaining three entrances as soon as possible.
