"The story of North American Bison is mysterious and tragic. Once, large herds supported the native people of the plains and nourished the first explorers and settlers. But by 1875, millions of Bison had diminished to a few hundred, mostly in captivity. Although the total number of
Bison in North America has increased and the species is not at risk today, there are few wild herds left, and we know almost nothing about the wild Bison that originally roamed the great plains."
