Local Reservation Sees First Baby Bison Born in More Than a Century
This new calf is being hailed as the "beginning of a new chapter."
There ain't nothing cuter than a baby, right? No matter the species, we can find something endearing about new life entering the world. Most recently that new life came in the form of a baby bison born this week on the Wind River Reservation. According to the Casper Star Tribune quoting the National Wildlife Federation, this is the first calf born on the reservation in 130 years.
It's been a while since buffalo have been on the reservation.
Just last November, 10 bison were released back onto the land in front of a crowd of joyful onlookers. The Star Tribune says this was the result of decades of hard work to get these animals back on their native land. Hunting had previously wiped out the population.
