Bison Gores Taiwanese Girl at Yellowstone

A 16-year-old Taiwanese girl has been gored by a bison while posing for a photo in Yellowstone National Park.
The National Park Service said in a statement over the weekend that while visiting Yellowstone with her host family, the girl sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries from the attack on Friday afternoon.
Park rangers who rushed to the scene took the girl to the Old Faithful Clinic at the park before she was airlifted out by helicopter for further treatment.
According to the park service, every year some visitors to Yellowstone are gored by bison, sometimes fatally.
Authorities tell visitors not to go within 25 yards of bison and other large animals. Warning that "Bison can sprint three times faster than humans can run and are unpredictable and dangerous,"
The bison population in Yellowstone is estimated to range between 2,300 to 5,000.
