A bison gored a 72-year-old woman in Yellowstone National Park after she "approached within 10 feet of a bison multiple times to take its photo," according to a National Park Service press release.

The press release said the incident occurred last Thursday evening at the California woman’s campsite at Bridge Bay Campground.

The woman was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center via helicopter after rangers provided immediate care on-site for multiple goring wounds.

No further information about the woman's condition was immediately available.
