A 34-year-old man from Colorado Springs was speared by a bison in Yellowstone National Park on Monday.
The incident happened near the Giant Geyser in Old Faithful, park officials said in a news release. The man was walking with his family on the promenade when a bull attacked the group.
The man suffered an arm injury and was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center by ambulance. The incident is being investigated.
Park officials are urging the public to stay more than 25 feet away from bison and other large wildlife such as moose, elk, deer and bighorn sheep.
Monday’s goring is the second reported incident at the park this year.
On May 30, a bison speared a 25-year-old Ohio woman and threw her ten feet in the air. This incident happened near a boardwalk in Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful. The woman suffered a stab wound and other injuries.
