Just the other day I've seen a TV programme which reminded me of the sad bison (hi)story...as they were hunted almost to extinction in the late 19th century. US federal forces were ordered to slaughter the herds to deprive the Native Americans of their source of food. Today the herd that resides in Yellowstone NP is the only continuously wild bison herd in the United States.
Thanks Bryon for this gorgeous photo, I've been wanting a bison postcard for a long time! The stamps are great too :))
