“The series of events that led to the goring suggest the bison was threatened by being repeatedly approached to within 10 feet,” said Yellowstone’s Senior Bison Biologist Chris Geremia in the statement. “Bison are wild animals that respond to threats by displaying aggressive behaviors like pawing the ground, snorting, bobbing their head, bellowing, and raising their tail. If that doesn’t make the threat (in this instance it was a person) move away, a threatened bison may charge. To be safe around bison, stay at least 25 yards away, move away if they approach, and run away or find cover if they charge.”

“Wildlife in Yellowstone National Park are wild,” authorities from Yellowstone declared in their statement. “When an animal is near a campsite, trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space. Stay more than 25 yards (23 m) away from all large animals - bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes and at least 100 yards (91 m) 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.

The Humane Society of the United States released the following statement Tuesday morning in response to the woman being gored at Yellowstone by a bison:

“The Humane Society of the United States is sad to learn of the goring of a Yellowstone visitor by a bison and we hope that she will be okay," said John Griffin, Senior Director of Wildlife Protection for the Humane Society of the United States. "With millions of Americans taking to the outdoors this summer -- and particularly this holiday weekend -- this incident is an important reminder to exercise the greatest caution when exploring landscapes that wildlife call home. To keep people and wild animals safe when wildlife watching, it is paramount to understand their needs, respect their space, keep a safe distance and avoid any actions that might frighten, aggravate or incite them. These incidents should never have to happen.”
