A California woman was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being gored by a bull bison near Yellowstone National Park's Fountain Paint Pot boardwalk.

Wenk said Yellowstone bison should be managed like wildlife rather than livestock and the herd's size should not be exclusively determined by ranchers who live outside the park in Montana. The bison became agitated and charged the crowd, officials said. She was then transported by ambulance to the Big Sky Medical Center in Big Sky, Montana, according to the release.

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

Kim Hancock, a 59-year-old from Santa Rosa, was with a crowd of people who were mobbing the hefty wild animal when it apparently decided it felt cramped.

Park staff do not intend to capture nor kill the bison.
