This big dude will soon be buffalo burgers I think. The owners are not very happy with his attitude.

These days they are but a symbol of America, but they once were essential for the American Indians survival. They used every part of the Buffalo, even the bones.

I think they are magnificent, and sturdy.

Our ancestors nearly wiped them out.

I've never had a Bison burger, but I have a co-worker who raises them. He has BIG fences!

Can you imagine what it must have been like to ride up over a ridge and see thousands of these grazing?!

He is gorgeous! Great pictures, too! I had a bison burger the other day and it was fantastic. Hardly any grease and the taste was great. smile.gif

I am currently studying Native American Art History and they talk extensively about how important the Bison was to many Native tribes and how that came through in their art. I think they are facinating!

Those suckers can be pretty nasty! We have a neighbor here who has recently become the subject of "scrutiny". He worked his booty off putting up fence on his 10 acres this summer, we're thinking he's trying to keep his dogs in, or maybe he plans to get some goats or horses or something. T-posts with a wood 4x4 every 4 or 5 spots, 4 foot tall field fence, with a single hotwire strand across the top. We see him out there one day pulling up his corner bracing and posts, and re-setting them, and we can't figure out why because it just looks the same--maybe he was cementing them in or something. Then we hear he wants buffalo. Gee, good thing he cemented the corner posts.... HA! I tell you what, if any of those things gets onto my property, we'll be eating good for the next year! Seriously though, what the heck would you do? Try to halter it and lead it home?! biggrin.gif

You must have used a zoom lense for that one, he looks like he'd eat you! They are pretty cool looking though, massive and magnificent.
