Buffalo!


One of the great things we see on our drive to work every morning are the Buffalo! Unfortunately, it's difficult to take photos of them from the car, so on our winter snow walk, we hoofed it to the buffalo to take their photos (finally!). Apparently a man named Laurent Girardet imported this herd from Canada in the 90's and they've been an attraction ever since.






It was a pretty flimsy fence separating them from us, so I'm glad they decided to stay put!

They are such amazing beasts! So, are these raised for their meat? Or are they simply left alone to attract attention??

Thanks all!

Chuck: I'm not sure, but the herd has grown considerably since this guy brought them over, so I doubt it!
