I was deeply saddened to hear about the murder of the buffalo calf in Yellowstone. These beautiful animals have quickly become one of my favorite animals. And as someone who has witness herds of them roam the prariers in both SD and WY I have seen their beauty and majastery in person. I have even looked one in the eye. These creatures are one of the many things that makes America Beautiful and killing one is killing part of America’s beauty. And one last thought: what kind of person would take something like a buffalo calf away from its family and natural envirment? These animals were built to withstand the cold and snow.
