JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (WCMH) — A nine-year-old girl was injured Monday when she was tossed in the air by a charging bison in Yellowstone National Park.
It happened Monday afternoon near Observation Point Trail near Old Faithful Geyser, according to a park release.
Witnesses said a group of 50 people was within 5-10 feet of the bison for at least 20 minutes before, eventually causing the bison to charge the group.
The nine-year-old girl was tossed in the air by the bison as it charged. She was taken to the Old Faithful Lodge by her family where she was treated by a park emergency medical provider. She was later taken to and released from the Old Faithful Clinic.
No citation have been issued. The incident remains under investigation.
