野牛在黃石國家公園襲擊婦女

美國懷俄明州黃石國家公園的一名遊客在短短三天內成為第二個被野生野牛襲擊的人。

事件發生時,這名來自賓夕法尼亞州的34歲男子和他的家人正沿着公園標誌性的老忠實間歇泉附近的木板路行走。

美國網絡獲得的錄像顯示,該男子在他的孩子被拋到空中之前,急忙把他的孩子從公牛的路上移開。

5月底,一名25歲的俄亥俄州婦女也被野牛襲擊,這是今年首次報道的襲擊事件。

官員說,她在公園遠足時離動物太近,被拋到了10英尺(3米)的空中。

野牛是極具攻擊性和領地性的動物。黃石公園的官員多次警告說,生活在公園裡的公牛是野生的,當接近時可能會有危險。

公園官員說,野牛的速度可以達到每小時30英里(48公里),在黃石公園受傷的人比任何其他動物都多。

在發給遊客的建議中,公園管理員建議在任何時候都要與野生野牛保持至少75英尺(23米)的距離,如果不可避免地與動物接觸,要 "轉身走到另一邊,避免與附近的野生動物發生互動"。

黃石公園是美國公共土地上最大的野牛集合地,大約有5000頭野牛,分屬兩個主要群體。


A visitor to Yellowstone National Park in the US state of Wyoming has become the second person in just three days to be attacked by a wild bison.

The incident occurred as the 34-year-old man from the state of Pennsylvania and his family were walking along a boardwalk near the park's iconic Old Faithful geyser.

Video footage obtained by US networks showed the man hurriedly moving his child out of the bull bison's path before he was thrown in the air.

A 25-year-old Ohio women was also attacked by a bison at the end of May in the first reported attack of the year.

She was tossed 10ft (3m) in the air after coming too close to the animal during a hike in the park, officials said.

Bison are extremely aggressive and territorial animals. Yellowstone officials have repeatedly warned that the bull bison living at the park are wild and can be dangerous when approached.

Park officials say bisons, which can travel at speeds of up to 30mph (48kmh), have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal.

In advice issued to visitors, park rangers suggest staying at least 75ft (23m) away from wild bison at all times and, if coming into contact with the animal is unavoidable, to "turn around and go the other way to avoid interacting with a wild animal in proximity".

Yellowstone is home to the largest collection of bison on public land in the US, with about 5,000 of the animals in two major groups.
