A bison has gored a woman, the third animal attack in Yellowstone National Park this week.

That's perhaps the lesson for a 59-year-old California woman who was gored by a bison in Yellowstone on Wednesday.

At one point, people were closer than 15 feet to the bull, officials said. It then immediately fled the area. She was later taken by ambulance to the Big Sky Medical Center in Big Sky, Montana in good condition.

According to the National Parks Service, bison have lived in Yellowstone since prehistoric times, but went almost extinct in the USA after excessive hunting in the 1800s. It is the second incident of a bison injuring a visitor in 2018.

Argentina have been drawn in Group D where they play Iceland on June 16, Croatia on June 21 and Nigeria on June 26. Lanzini has earned four caps to date and scored his first senior global goal in a 2-0 friendly victory over Italy.

Yellowstone officials say a crowd got too close to the bison Wednesday in the Lower Geyser Basin. There was also one a year ago and five in 2015.

It was the latest in a string of injuries caused by wildlife in Yellowstone. The statement noted that people should keep a distance of roughly 75 feet at least from certain animals including bison and elk, and stay even further away from bears and wolves. Two women were injured in separate attacks by a cow elk near the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel Sunday and Tuesday. Park officials could not say whether it was the same elk.

'Animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be, ' the park's guidelines state. Park officials said in a release that they don't know if the same elk was involved in both incidents.
