The incident remains under investigation. 

On Monday, a bull bison at the park gored a 34-year-old Colorado man. The park said the Colorado Springs visitor was walking with his family on a boardwalk near Giant Geyser when the animal charged the group. 

The man sustained an injury to his arm and was transported by ambulance to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. 

And on May 30, another woman was gored after approaching a bison in Yellowstone. The 25-year-old woman from Grove City, Ohio sustained a puncture wound and other injuries, NPS said.
