Florida Girl Travels to Yellowstone National Park, Gets Launched by a Bison

Wyoming (WTFF) – A 9-year-old Florida girl was injured after a bison launched her into the air on Monday.

The unidentified girl was at the Old Faithful Geyser area of the park, standing less than 10 feet away from the bull bison before the animal charged, the National Park Service said in a press release Tuesday. (NBC)

Hailey Dayton filmed the incident, and told NBC News on Wednesday, “My brother and I were looking at the hot springs, and we saw a bunch of people running down the path to the bridge. We saw through the trees some people petting the bison, super close.”

The group of 50 or 60 people gathered near the bison before “causing the bison to charge,” the park service stated. Guests are told to always stay at least 25 yards from bison, elk, deer and moose.

“Because it was agitated by all the people and noise, it just kind of attacked,” Dayton said. “After that, everyone was screaming. There were a bunch of kids crying.”

Two people in the video, presumably the girl’s parents, can be seen running away as the bison charges.

The park service said in a statement that the girl was “assessed and treated by park emergency medical providers, and later taken to and released from the Old Faithful Clinic.”

The incident is under investigation. No citations were issued yet.

What kind of parent would run away leaving their daughter like that? Surely those were not her parents.
