ANTELOPE ISLAND, Utah (ABC4 News) – A 55-year-old man who was critically injured Saturday morning at Antelope Island State Park in what officials believe may have been a bison attack has died.
According to a press release issued by the Utah Division of Natural Resources two women who were at the state park came across a man, identified later as Larry M. Adams, who was alone on a trail and was calling for help.
