Canadaian Wood Bison

Canadian Wood Bison.

This picture was taken by Pam (I'm pretty sure). When we saw bison no one got out of the vehicle and it seemed like they were always on her side, so she took most all of the bison pictures.

We were told that these were located by the government to this area. The government did not realize that the bison would find the grass along side the roadway easy to get to and apparently very tasty. So along a stretch of the Alaskan highway around Laird Springs is this herd of buffalo that wanders up and down the road.

When they decide to cross the road, they don't look both ways and wait for the car to pass. They just lumbar across the road. It is your job to watch out for them.
