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.
