POTD: Where The Buffalo Roam

POTD: Where The Buffalo Roam
May 28, 2016 Brian Truono
Recently adopted as the national mammal of the United States, the American Bison, or more commonly known as the American Buffalo, was nearly driven to extinction due to commercial hunting. Prior to the 1800s, it’s estimated there were 40 to 60 million bison roaming the river valleys, prairies and plains of the midwest. In less than 100 years, by the 1890s, the number of bison alive in North America dwindled to as low as 541. In part to conservation, awareness and protection on public lands, such as Yellowstone National Park, the population has begun to recover with approximately 500,000 living across the continent.
