2ND TOURIST IN WEEK GORED BY BISON

For the second time in a week, a tourist was gored by a bull bison in Yellowstone National Park.

Kathleen Coombs, 41, of San Marino, Calif., was gored in the abdomen and thigh on Wednesday when she approached within 15 feet of the buffalo and it charged her.She was transported by park rangers to Lake Hospital for immediate treatment and was later transferred to West Park Hospital in Cody where she was listed in stable condition.

Coombs is the third tourist to be gored in the park this season. The first occurred at West Thumb on May 28. The second occurred last Saturday in the Lake developed area, the same place Coombs was injured.
