Shocking Moment Angry One-Ton Bison Throws 9-Year-Old Girl 10Ft Into The Air

This is the terrifying moment an angry one-ton bison charges at a nine-year-old girl and tosses her ten feet into the air. Shockingly her family apparently ran to save themselves as the girl was attacked by the huge bull at Yellowstone National Park, USA.

The incident took place on Monday afternoon near Observation Point Trail in the Old Faithful Geyser area.

Witnesses claim a group of around 50 people were within five to ten feet of the bison for at least 20 minutes before it launched an attack.

Her family took the young girl, from Odessa, Florida, to the Old Faithful Lodge for treatment, park officials said. She was later taken to and released from the Old Faithful Clinic.

“This is what happens when you care about wildlife and don’t care about an animal’s personal space,” she wrote.

And she slammed what appear to be her parents for not protecting the child, adding: “As you can see the parents saved themselves over their daughter. I’m disgusted.”

The animals at the park are wild and require space, staff have warned.

On the park’s website it states: “When an animal is near a trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space.

“Stay 75ft away from all large animals – bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes and at least 300ft away from bears and wolves.

“If need be, turn around and go the other way to avoid interacting with a wild animal in close proximity.”

Yellowstone National Park said the incident is under investigation.

Last year a 59-year-old woman was hospitalised after she was gored by a charging bison in Yellowstone National Park.

Eyewitnesses said the bull bison “became agitated and charged the crowd before immediately leaving the area.”
