A 30-year old Michigan woman suffered significant injuries in an encounter with a bison on a trail, within Yellowstone National Park.

A park spokesperson says the woman was hiking with a partner on Sunday afternoon (June 20th), along Storm Point Trail, which is near the northern portion of Yellowstone Lake, when they came across the bison.

There’s no information what happened during the encounter, and the woman was flown to a hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Park management recommends visitors stay at least 25 yards away from large animals such as bison, elk, bighorn sheep, and moose, and at least 100 yards away for more dangerous animals such as bears and wolves.
