The bison carries a dark brown fur, that becomes somewhat lighter as well as thinner in the summer-months. At the head, shaped like a triangle, there are short, upward bent horns. The powerful beard can reach a length of up to 20 cm. Despite its nearly 1,000 kg, they can reach speeds of over 50 km/h.
Different Indian tribes hunted the bison for the own need. Not only because of the meat, but also in order to produce clothes as well as blankets, ropes, dishes or jewellery.
With the colonization of North America by immigrants, the mass destruction began. Several thousand animals were shot per day, the most famous buffalo hunter was undoubtedly “Buffalo Bill”.
In 1872 the Yellowstone National Park was founded and the rescue of the buffalo was initiated. In 1894, only 800 animals were counted, half of which lived in Yellowstone National Park. In the last 100 years the bison population has increased considerably. Today, it is estimated that there are over 300,000 animals again, of which about 4,000 bison live in Yellowstone National Park.
