The woman's father sprung to action, covering her until the bison moved away. After a trip to the Old Faithful Clinic, the woman was lucky: Her injuries were minor.
"The family said they read the warnings in both the park literature and the signage, but saw other people close to the bison, so they thought it would be OK," said Colleen Rawlings, Old Faithful District Ranger. "People need to recognize that Yellowstone wildlife is wild, even though they seem docile. This woman was lucky that her injuries were not more severe."
