1008_0702 Plains Bison

Yesterday afternoon as I approached the entry gate of Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan - no entry fee, no guard - I noticed Parks Canada had a new display: a full size bison cutout! I thought this was just slightly over the top... then, as I drove past, I realized it was a live bison... most of its kin are currently in the park's back country, so who knows what this bull was doing so far away from the herd... it didn't seem concerned over my arrival, and in fact posed for this portrait.
