A man, from Colorado, was with his family at Yellowstone National Park on Monday when the 1,800lb animal went on the rampage

The 34-year-old was walking on a boardwalk near the famous Old Faithful geyser at the time of the attack.

Dramatic video captured the bison charging toward the family, almost injuring a small child.

The man can be seen shielding the youngster from the animal as it went on the attack.

Park rangers warned: “Wildlife in Yellowstone National Park are wild and can be dangerous when approached.

“When an animal is near a campsite, trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space.”

Wildlife officials recommend tourists should stay around 25 yards away from large animals such as bison, moose, and elk.

It comes just weeks after a 25-year-old woman, from Grove City, Ohio, was gored by the massive mammal.

Park rangers said she threatened the beast when she got within 10 feet of it.

The bison pounced and tossed her in the air and she suffered a puncture wound.
