A woman was gored by a bison at Yellowstone National Park Wednesday after a crowd got too close to the animal, according to park officials.

The park report said some in the crowd came within 15 feet of the bison.

When the bison crossed the walkway, it became "agitated" and charged the nearby group, park officials said. It left the area immediately following the incident.

Park rangers responded to the incident and treated Hancock for a hip injury.

Hancock is the second person to be attacked by a bison this year, and the third hurt by wildlife in less than a week.

Environmentalists on Friday accused the Trump administration of political interference and retaliation in the ouster of Yellowstone National Park's chief after his disputes with U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke over the park's celebrated bison.

Earlier this week, two women were attacked by female elk protecting their calves, according to USA Today.

Should the state tourism offices in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho continue to spend taxpayer money promoting Yellowstone National Park as a summer destination?

The park stresses animals are wild, no matter how calm they appear, and it's advised to stay 25 yards away from all animals and 100 yards away from bears and wolves.

"After 42 ½ years, I felt like it was a punitive action to have me leave Yellowstone National Park, especially when they have not told me why they want me to go to the National [Capital] Region", Wenk said. Park officials aren't sure if it was the same elk. There was one incident in 2017 and five in 2015, park officials said.

Wenk spent more than four decades with the National Park Service and seven years in Yellowstone. "If you can't maintain these distances, turn around and find an alternate route".
