Sunday Selfie(s): Buffalo Gals . . . and Babies!

Since 1890, Golden Gate Park has had bison. The current herd is made up of five adult females. About a week ago, as part of the park's 150th anniversary celebration, five yearlings were added! Right now they are quarantined in the smaller north pasture (behind the far fence) but they'll be integrated with the grownup ladies at the beginning of April.


Since the :30 video lacks an appropriate soundtrack (the Human's skills are so very limited), you can play this as you watch:


I'm sure I don't have to tell you how excited I am 
about all of this.

It will be lovely when they are all in together.
I can see that you are finding it hard to contain your excitement, Spitty.

Spitty, she is just using up her extra time...if she doted upon you 24/7/365, you'd be cranky...

They are so cute. When I saw the title of your post, I immediately thought of Jimmy Stewart singing that song in It's a Wonderful Life. XO

I can see the excitement in your......well........not your eyes......maybe your fur? Can a guy have excited fur? Well anyway, it's the thought that counts. Happy snoozing! I do think it's cool there are some "younguns" on the range though.

Hugs, Teddy

Those bison are petty cool, Spitty. Did you know that the mom feeds me bison sometimes? Now after seeing these guys, I’m feeling a little guilty about it.

Try to contain your excitement Spitty. Mum was singing "Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam."

Those sure are some beautiful lumbering creatures. Oh, and that song reminded dad of "It's a Wonderful Life".
