Selfie Gone Wrong! Bison Attacks Woman Trying to Take Photo
This is definitely a case of a selfie gone terribly wrong!
A woman was attacked in Yellowstone National Park while posing for a selfie with a bison.
The 43-year-old Mississippi woman was reportedly about six yards away from the animal when she turned her back to take a photo with it.
The massive beast charged at her and flipped her into the air.
The Associated Press reported:
“The (woman) said they knew they were doing something wrong but thought it was OK because other people were nearby,” park spokeswoman Amy Bartlett said. “People are getting way too close.”
In separate incidents earlier this year, bison gored a 68-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl and tossed an off-trail teenager and an Australian tourist into the air.
Five bison encounters resulting in injuries is unusual during a tourist season, Bartlett said.
The park prohibits people from getting within 25 yards of bison. There have been a total of five encounters between park-goers and buffalo so far this year.
