California woman hospitalized after bison attacks her at Yellowstone National Park

A bison attacked a California woman at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, sending her to the hospital Wednesday, park officials said.

Kim Hancock was walking with a group of people along a boardwalk when the bison approached them in Lower Geyser Basin, according to park officials.

The bison became agitated and then charged at the crowd — goring the 59-year-old — before immediately leaving the area.

Hancock, of Santa Rosa, was taken to a hospital in Montana for a hip injury. She’s in good condition, officials said Thursday.

Park officials are still investigating the incident.

It was the third animal attack this week. A cow elk injured a 53-year-old Texas woman on Tuesday, and another woman, 51, from Las Vegas on Sunday behind the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, according to park officials.

It’s unknown whether the same elk was involved in both incidents, officials said.
