Jess Reid Chasing Wild Buffalo? Yikes!
The island is a state park and the 750 buffalo are the purest strain of bison left in North America – they have been on the island since 1880’s.
The island is 15 miles long, 5 miles wide with a mountain ridge running through the middle of it. Every year, cowboys push the bison to the north-end of the island to giant holding pens. After the bison are blood-tested by volunteer veterinarians, some are sold for meat and some new bison are brought into the herd and they are let free to roam the island.
Yippie Ky Yah Yo!
