"Given the lack of scarring on his horns and ribs I'd guess this big guy to be about five to seven years old, a prime breeder of the Lamar Valley Bison herd. Standing near six feet at the top of his hump, he likely tips the scales at close to fifteen hundred pounds. A magnificent animal that graces this earth he calls his own."

    Yellowstone has a native herd. It travels ancient pathways in its migration. The ranchers would like to decimate the herd to nothing. They destroy fencing, you see. And of course, they "might" carry brucellosis, which causes domestic cattle to abort which, I understand, is passed to the cattle by elk. BUT, apparently all that isn't true. If you want to learn more, about the controlling of the population by park rangers, please visit Buffalo Field Campaign and educate yourself. And then, somewhere on their pages or on a Youtube search, you can view the excellent documentary of about an hour called "Silencing the Thunder". You will be surprised, saddened, but you will be educated.
    Sorry to preach.
