Bison injures woman posing for selfie at Yellowstone

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.
