BISON TOSS Woman Needs Helmet

Young lady (25) walks up to a female bison in Yellowstone. Did she want to chat with it about Old Faithful? Not sure if the young lady already has children, but that bison was in no mood to chat this day, so the bison gored her and tossed her into the air, ensuring she can produce no more children.

Wendy says: "Fully Stupid! This woman should go through life with a protective helmet. But there has been an update to the article: A previous version of this article misstated the severity of the injuries. She was gored by a bison after approaching within 10 feet—eek!—and suffered puncture wounds. She was not killed. We can see from reading the news URL below that the article was originally titled Yellowstone Visitor Dies."

I just can't fathom how anybody would think it's a good idea to walk up to a wild animal that weighs in excess of 1,000 pounds. Thanks!
