Man Injured at Antelope Island State Park in Possible Bison Incident 


ANTELOPE ISLAND STATE PARK — A 55-year-old man was critically injured today while trail running at Antelope Island State Park.

Two women who were on the Antelope Island State Park Lakeside Trail came across a lone trail runner who was calling out for help.  The women called 911 and state park personnel responded.  They then promptly administered first aid and called for a medical helicopter to transport the injured man to the University of Utah hospital for further treatment.

The man’s injuries are consistent with a possible bison encounter, but there were no known witnesses.  This incident remains under investigation at this time.
