The American bison (Bison bison; PL : bison), also called the American buffalo or simply buffalo is a species of bison native to North America. I spent many hours observing them with my husband, John during our trips to Yellowstone. DID YOU KNOW that the American bison may be big, males can grow to be over 6 feet tall and 11 feet long, but they are also fast. They are able to run up to 35 miles per hour. They are also extremely agile, able to jump high fences and are strong swimmers.
Though bison once roamed across much of North America, today they are “ecologically extinct” as a wild species throughout most of their historic range, except for a few national parks and other small wildlife areas. Two small herds of pure, wild Yellowstone bison live at Fort Peck and Fort Belknap Indian Reservations. Beginning in the early 20th century, conservation herds were established to rebuild populations. With this, the number of herds that are known to contain cattle genes had increased. Though approximately 500,000 bison exist on private ranches and in public herds, perhaps only 15,000 to 25,000 of these bison are “pure” and are not actually bison-cattle hybrids.
I created Mighty Bison to pay homage to the comeback of this mighty species.
