A Taiwanese student was visiting Yellowstone National Park when she was gored by a buffalo.
The 16-year-old was trying to take a selfie with the animal near Old Faithful.
When she turned her back to snap the shot, the bison stabbed her.
The injuries were serious, but luckily they weren’t life threatening.
The park then issued a statement reminding visitors to keep their distance from the wildlife. It read:
“Visitors are reminded that Yellowstone wildlife is wild. Wildlife should not be approached, no matter how tame or calm they appear.”
We’re really glad the student’s injuries aren’t life threatening, and we hope she gets better soon!
