YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — Viewer Cloie Musumecci sent MTN video of a woman tripping and falling as a bison charges at her and another person in Yellowstone National Park.

Cloie said in an email Friday the incident happened at Nez Perce Creek. She said the woman "is a Montana local so she knew to play dead in that situation."

The woman was reportedly uninjured and escaped "without a scratch," Cloie said.

No further information about the couple charged by the bison was immediately available. We will update this story if we get more details.
