Blizzard---a Rare White Bison

    Newer Older

    Calgary is in a deep freeze----what better time than now to introduce Blizzard, a 3 year-old male white bison calf. The white bison is considered a spiritual animal by the First Nations People. Members of the First Nations gathered for a celemony / prayers upon his arrival and departure. Blizzard is probably the only white bison on display anywhere in Canada and his pernament home is in Winnipeg

    Photographed at the Calgary Zoo
