TOOELE, Utah — A 65-year-old man is recovering after he was gored by a bison Saturday afternoon.

Sgt. Shandy Lewis of the Tooele County Sheriff’s Office said the incident occurred at about 2:41 p.m.

Lewis said the man was trying to get his bison’s foot unstuck from a fence, and in the process the animal became aggravated. When the bison was freed, the animal attacked the man. The victim was wounded in his buttocks, abdomen and head.

The man was taken to a hospital via helicopter. His injuries are believed to be non life threatening.
