The 54-year-old woman from Iowa was approaching the young bison when the adult charged at her catching her belt and jeans around its horn in the process.
The animal was then able to run off with her jeans but in the process knocked her unconscious. 
The woman was flung around like a rag doll before finally hitting the ground, after which point the bison returned to its herd.
The woman ended up having to be air lifted to hospital and is said to have suffered serious injuries but is expected to make a full recovery, according to KELO.
The incident occurred while thousands of motorcyclists are in the Black Hills in the western park of the state for the 2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The Custer County Sheriff, Marty Mechaley, warned visitors to keep their distance from bison in the park. 
'We would like to remind everyone to not pet the fluffy cows - also known as Bison/Buffalo. We have had calls about the fluffy cows blocking the road occasionally - some people are also getting too close. 
'Remember this is their park and we are the guests….please give them a break and keep your distance.
The area is busy for the time of year with estimated 250,000 people have flocking to the state as part of a 10-day festival known as the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
The rally is expected to become one of the largest public gatherings since the pandemic began. 
People rode from across the country to a state that offered a reprieve from coronavirus restrictions, as South Dakota has no special limits on indoor crowds, no mask mandates and a governor who is eager to welcome visitors and the money they bring.
