For the second time in days, a bison gored a visitor at Yellowstone National Park, park officials said.
The 71-year-old woman from West Chester, Pennsylvania, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening in the encounter Wednesday, the park said in a statement.
She and her daughter were returning to their vehicle at a trailhead when they inadvertently approached a bison, and a bull bison charged her, the officials said.
It was the third time a bison has attacked a visitor at Yellowstone this year and the second time this week.
