YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyoming (AP) -- Yellowstone National Park officials are warning tourists to keep their distance from bison after one flipped a woman into the air as she posed for a selfie with the massive beast.
The dangerous encounter was the fifth run-in between tourists and buffalo at the park this year.
Park officials say the 43-year-old Mississippi woman turned her back on the animal Tuesday evening to get a photo with it on a trail near Old Faithful.
She and her daughter were about 6 yards (5.5 meters) away when it came at them and tossed her with its head.
The woman's family drove her to a nearby clinic where she was treated and released.
Yellowstone prohibits people from getting within 25 yards (23 meters) of bison.
