Some of the visitors got even closer, agitating the bison and provoking it to cross the boardwalk and charge into Hancock. She was taken to the hospital with a hip injury and was in good condition, the park said.

She is now in good condition and the incident remains under investigation.

For the third time this week and fourth time in just over a month, a park visitor was attacked by wildlife. Park officials aren't sure if it was the same elk.

There have been two bison attacks so far in 2018. Two women were attacked by elk in separate incidents, one on Sunday and another on Tuesday, near the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, according to officials who also said it wasn't clear whether the same animal was involved in both encounters. Because of the severity of her injuries she was flown to an Idaho trauma center. The woman tried to back away, but the elk pursued her and struck her in the head and torso.

Calving season is causing elk mothers to act aggressively as they protect their newborns and hide them near buildings or cars, park experts said.

"Animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be", officials wrote.

A safe distance is at least 75 feet, the park stressed.

One person was injured by a bison at Yellowstone in 2017 and five were injured in 2015. Rangers advise staying at least 25 yards away from animals like bison and elk, the park said.
