"I was charged and gored by a bison because I was too CLOSE to being passing them on a railway," "I am posing to support safety while enjoying Texas State Parks."

She went on to explain in another video how the bison gored her with his horns, ramming her in the back, and then tossing her into some bushes.

She says it was over 50 minutes before help arrived explaining she didn't have great cell service or access to 911.

Thankfully she was eventually able to get a call out to friends and family who then called for help.

Then a helicopter transported her to the nearest hospital.

Worse for wear, and with a few gashes and bruises, Rebecca says she learned a lesson but still wants to go back to hike caprock
