Laiha Slayton was flown to an Idaho hospital after her attempt to save her dog, Rusty, from a thermal spring at Yellowstone National Park.
The Illinois woman, seen photographing the bear family in a viral video, was also banned from Yellowstone National Park for a year.
"Prepare fer Rammin' speed, matey!" the National Park Service wrote of the encounter.
Viral video appeared to show a woman approaching a bear family at the national park before the mother charged at her.
Gov. Greg Gianforte violated his state’s hunting regulations to trap and kill a gray wolf.
The woman was reportedly taking pictures near the famous Old Faithful geyser and fell into a thermal feature while backing up.
"I’m not an animal person. I barely like dogs," Deion Broxton told HuffPost.
Yellowstone National Park officials said the visitor ventured off a boardwalk in the dark and tripped into a thermal spring near Old Faithful geyser.
A witness who videoed the encounter said the bison became “agitated by all the people and noise” and “just kind of attacked.”
The wild wolf, also known as 926F, died the same way her famous mother did in 2012.
