My town has a herd of buffalo . . .
To be correct, the 'buffalo' is actually called the North American Bison . . . the animal that roamed the American West in the millions until they were nearly wiped out in the late 1800s.
This guy above belongs to a herd that hangs out in Golden, Colorado, and that are direct descendents of the seven remaining wild animals found in Yellowstone National Park in 1914.
The herd is maintained by the City of Denver.
Some interesting Bison facts:
* They weigh close to 2,000 pounds and some males may top that weight.
* They can jump a 6-foot fence from a standing position, or an 8-foot fence on the run. This helps explain the tall fence separating people from bison.
