Genetically Pure Bison Found In Utah Gives Hope for Restoration of Iconic Species - Good News Network - Scientists have found a rare herd of American bison that have never interbred with cattle, offering hope of restoring the species.
Bison are nomadic grazers and travel in herds. The bulls leave the herds of females at years of age, and join a male herd which is generally smaller than the female herds. Mature bulls rarely travel alone.
A White Buffalo or White Bison is an American bison possessing white fur, and is considered sacred or spiritually significant in several Native American religions; therefore, such buffalo are often visited for prayer and other religious rituals.
