“Bison in Europe are called Wisent and are making a comeback as well. Both kinds of bison were almost extinct. Without bison, our European ancestors could not have survived. Culturally and spiritually, bison are very important to the Native People. We prefer our domesticated animals over wild ones such as the bison, but bison are much more adapted to cold and hot climates than our cattle. IN our changing climate, bison have a much greater chance at survival out on the prairie than our domesticated animals. They require no human care and can birth their calves all on their own without help from humans.” ~ Elke Duerr
“My apologies to the newborn bison calves who are getting hazed and sometimes hurt during the annual haze back into Yellowstone National Park after their mothers migrate out onto public land to give birth to them.” Bison Nation
