A student-bison encounter ended with a teen exchange student being gored by a wild animal. The unfortunate incident took place at Yellowstone National Park, which just happened to be the site of a recent brush between a family of tourists and a family of bears. Fortunately, that encounter didn’t result in any injuries. The foreign exchange student-bison encounter didn’t end nearly as well.
A student-bison encounter ended with a teen exchange student being gored by the angry beast.
According to a May 17, 2015 report from the Inquisitr, officials have not released the identity of the foreign exchange student gored by a bison at Yellowstone National Park. The female victim was a 16-year-old student from Taiwan who was visiting the park with her host family when the attack occurred. She turned her back on the animal to pose for a photo. That’s when the bison gored the student from behind, causing injury to her buttocks when it impaled her with its horn.
After being gored by the bison, the student was brought to the Old Faithful medical center at the park. From there, she was transported via helicopter to a local hospital. The teen is expected to survive her injuries.
