Now that Kayleigh Davis is stabilized and recovering she can laugh about a recent run-in with a bison at a Utah State Park. Kayleigh’s boyfriend Kyler Bourgeous was gored and trampled by a bison at Antelope Island State Park in June. He suffered a collapsed lung, broken ribs and internal injuries from the goring.
WYMT reports Bourgeous was on a date at the same park with his girlfriend, when he watched it happen again. While on the date Kayleigh Davis was trying to get out of the way of some bikers when:
“All of the sudden, I see the bison charging me, so I start running towards the lake away from it, and it flips me up.”
She hit the ground hard and fractured her ankle. Her thigh gushed blood from the puncture wound where the bison gored her. Through the pain she kept her sense and braced for a second attack:
“He was doing that whole paw thing, digging at the dirt like he’s going to charge after me again. I’ve heard from his story – just stay still so it doesn’t come charging at you again,”
Remaining still worked and the animal left her alone. Bourgeous knew her pain and held her hand through the ordeal. Crazy odds that a couple would both get gored but now they have a couples story that will dominate the dinner party circuit for the next decade:
