A bison charged and gored a California man Wednesday in Yellowstone National Park.

The 55-year-old Norco, Calif., man was 10 feet from the animal, taking pictures at the Bridge Bay Campground south of Lake Village about 11:30 a.m. The bison charged and gored him in the upper left thigh.

It was the second time a bison has injured a park visitor this year. A bison in the Canyon Village area tossed a 50-year-old Spanish woman into the air as she was talking on a pay phone June 24.
