A young university student from Surrey, England, wanted to take a break from her education for a year and travel the world. The worst days of her life were waiting for the unfortunate Amelia Dean, who went to the US state of South Dakota.
19-year-old Amelia Dean took advantage of her school’s right to take a break from her education for a year and took steps to go on the trips she always planned. His first stop was the US state of South Dakota.
He had no idea that the worst nightmare of his life awaited him wherever he went.
The monster that attacked Amelia, who wanted to go to Cluster State Park and spend a few days at one with nature, weighed exactly 907 kilograms.
The young woman was attacked by a bison when she was thrown from a height of 4.5 meters.
The giant animal pierced Amelia Dean’s artery with its horn that pierced her thigh, causing terrible pain and injury.
Amelia says she was lucky to survive, but unfortunately she was partially Paralyzed after she ruptured the femoral artery in her left thigh .
“It’s a miracle I’m even alive until the ambulance arrives, let alone protecting my life and my leg.” Saying that, Amelia’s family flew to the USA right next to her.
On the day of the attack, Amelia Dean was walking along a path in the park with her friend and her dog, when they climbed a hill and encountered a lone male bison grazing.
After some discussion, they decided to go around the bison and not disturb him before returning to the road. At this point the animal stopped grazing and started running towards Dean.
Her parents, Michael and Jacqueline, said: “Mia was suddenly shocked and the bison stopped right in front of her.”
The two friends stared at each other for a few seconds before the bison leaped forward and stabbed him in the left thigh with its horn and tossed him about four feet into the air.
When she hit the ground, Mia was trapped, unable to move her bleeding leg, and the bison stood by her for a while, causing Mia to feel his breath on her face.
Since the attack seven weeks ago, Amelia Dean has been paralyzed by nerve damage under her left knee. He is receiving treatment in Rapid City, South Dakota, where he flies to be with his parents, Matthew and Jacqueline.
Mr and Mrs Dean are raising a £140,000 donation to transfer their daughter to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for specialist treatment.
“Even though Mia’s British and travel insurance have paid for the femoral artery bypass so far, they refuse to pay even for her initial examination by the specialist of the nerve injury.”
