Kim Hancock, 59 of Santa Rosa, Calif., and a crowd of people approached within ten yards of the bison while walking along a boardwalk, according to a park press release.

The park report said some in the crowd came within 15 feet of the bison. She was taken to the hospital with a hip injury and was in good condition, the park said.

This is the second bison attack in the park this year.

A bison in Yellowstone National Park gored a woman Wednesday morning after a group of park goers crowded the animal, the National Park Service said in a statement Thursday.

The bison - which can weigh up to 2,000lb - got agitated and crossed the boardwalk, charging the crowd and goring Hancock.

A bison rammed and slightly injured a woman in Yellowstone in early May.

Earlier this week, he also commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by Kim Kardashian West. It has been widely reported that the White House has assembled the paperwork to pardon dozens of people.

In a little over a month, four people have been injured by wildlife in Yellowstone. Park officials aren't sure if it was the same elk.

Park officials are still investigating the incident.

Rangers recommend park visitors stay at least 25 yards away from animals, and at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves.

Last year, there was one bison-related injury and there were five such incidents in 2015.

Yellowstone warned that animals in the park are "wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be". A cow elk injured a 53-year-old Texas woman on Tuesday.

'Give animals space when they're near trails, boardwalks, parking lots, or in developed areas'.
