New Arrivals

A young bison and his mother in Jester Park, Iowa, May 24, 2018.

In late May, a young bison and his mother began their morning by the hay stack in the first field of The Bison and Elk Enclosure. The young bison was trying to rest. His mother was eating hay and grass and unceremoniously moving him from one spot to another.

The young bison walked or ran a little and then lay down in the grass to nap and eat whatever grass was within his resting reach. There was a second young bison further away from the fence. The two young bison have different mothers.
