AVALON, CALIFORNIA- A man who should have known better got too close to a bison to take a picture and wound up getting gored and sent to the hospital.

Chris Baker is head of the American Conservation Experience which works with the Catalina Island Conservancy on trail projects.

He was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center after the attack near the Two Harbors area of Santa Catalina Island. He suffered a punctured lung.

About 300 bison live on the island, the offspring of 14 animals taken to Santa Catalina in 1924 to make a Western film.
