Bison, Elk Island National Park, Alberta, Canada CM-01

Description : By autumn of 1909, there were an estimated 402 plains bison living within the confines of Elk Island from a variety of herds and genetic backgrounds. These bison were held in Elk Island while the fences around Buffalo National Park at Wainwright, Alberta, were being completed. Once this was done, the herd was gathered together and shipped to this new park. Attempts to capture the entire herd failed however, and about 45 plains bison remained in Elk Island to form the nucleus of today,s population.
