The Buffalo Are Roaming

While out taking my walk yesterday I noticed the buffalo are still roaming the field behind the house. There are new homes being built but for now they still have their field. I hope they continue roaming wild. They are incredible to see up close. Massive animals and I am glad there was a fence between us. I managed to quickly snap this photo.

Learned something today. What many people call the American buffalo is actually an animal named the American bison. True buffalos are different animals that live in Asia and Africa. American bison, on the other hand, live only in North America.

Now you know, in case you were wondering.

  1. I live in an agricultural area and someone near me was raising bison so I did walk by and see them. My son actually petted one while on a hike. As usual he was ahead of the group he was with and so he was with the beast before anyone could stop him. I think he must have been related to St. Francis of Assisi because the buffalo didn’t hurt him. And it was a wild one on Catalina Island.
