Here's my Buffalo aka Curly. Can't say where or how other than a good Crow friend of mine let me harvest this one. I got to keep the head mount and the meat went to a tribal ceremonial feast.

Was he in danger of freezing? Only after he was harvested and then to the freezer.

where do you come up with the bison are not allowed out of the park ? the bison are free ranging they can and do go where they feel like it . they are not herded into or kept in the park boundaries . I'm over south/west of west yellow stone clearly 20 miles out side the park and bison are all over now . they spend the winter out here out side the park . it's the domestic cattle that carry the disease spreading tuberculous to the bison . so the ranchers pump their cattle full of antibiotics and we all get to eat it when we buy a stake . also there are many bison ranches around montana wyoming , colorado , kansas etc

Nature has no sympathy for man or beast. I was in Rocky Nat Park and witnessed two coyotes harass a cow elk with a new born calf, they finally wore her down and killed the calf. A group of tourists from New York stopped and started screaming for some to notify the Rangers, that the coyotes were murdering the calf. It was hard to watch but part of nature's life/death cycle.

That bison calf should have been left alone it most likely would have survived, if not it would have become part of that cycle.

I'm sure you heard about the guy that hit the deer as it crossed the road.............. it was all the deer's fault because the deer did not cross the road at the deer crossing signs..........

Had a ranger in Yellowstone tell us that more people are killed by bison than bears every year. Next morning I walked out of our camper headed to the bathroom only to be staring eye to eye with a bison about 10 feet away - I decided to go back to bed for awhile!
