Massachusetts man gored by bison in park

Jun 26, 2012 - The Associated Press

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. -- Officials in Yellowstone National Park say a Massachusetts man was gored by a bull bison that threw him 10 feet in the air and then pinned him to the ground.

The man, who is in his mid-50s, suffered a broken collarbone, shoulder blade, several ribs and a groin injury in Saturday's encounter near the Norris campground in Wyoming, which encompasses more than 90 percent of the famed national park. He was airlifted to an Idaho Falls, Idaho hospital and is expected to recover.
