Bison attacks woman who was trying to take selfie with it in Yellowstone Park
CNN – ” . . . The latest person to find out the hard way is a 43-year-old Mississippi woman who tried to take a selfie with one of the hairy beasts near a trail on Tuesday.
She and her daughter turned their backs to the bison, which was about 6 yards away, to take a photo with it, according to the National Park Service.
“They heard the bison’s footsteps moving toward them and started to run, but the bison caught the mother on the right side, lifted her up and tossed her with its head,” the park service said in a statement Wednesday.”
” . . . The woman is the fifth person injured after approaching a bison in Yellowstone so far this season — and the third whose dangerous encounter resulted from photo-taking.”
