Mysterious buffalo herd runs amok in Canadian prairies

Ottawa (AFP) - A mysterious buffalo herd numbering almost 100 has appeared in the Canadian prairie province of Saskatchewan, officials said Friday, 150 years after they were hunted to the brink of extinction.

Police issued a warning to drivers to watch out for the large animals on local highways, while officials in the town of Tisdale, Saskatchewan, 300 kilometers (185 miles) north of the provincial capital Regina, try to sort out what to do with the beasts.

Spokespeople for the police and the town said they have no idea where the animals came from, and it remains unclear if they are domesticated or wild.

"We're not sure where they're from," Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Daryl Andrusiak told AFP.

How do they know they don't know? Do they surveil all of Canada? Or did they wander north because of global warming? blonde.gif

Not much of a mystery.

Good things happen when people aren't shooting to kill.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

My guess would be a buffalo ranch folded and they just set them free. There are only four genetically pure buffalo herd and one of them was transplanted.

What a shame...

But a new herd is great news!

Send them to a park for endangered species to ensure genetic viability.

Not such a great idea to have them all in a central location. A virus could wipe them all out and it would reduce the genetic viability. Perhaps better to have different versions of the same soup on the stovetop as it were.

Biologists have determined such a thing happened to the cheetah genome at some time in the past ~ there was a genetic bottleneck due to location and/or disease and today the results show a minimal genetic variability among all cheetahs on the planet. That's not a good thing.

And they don't want to take a chance of mixing them with the pure gene wild buffalo. There aren't too many left.

Quote:Today, approximately 500,000 bison live across North America. However, most of these are not pure wild bison, but have been cross-bred with cattle in the past, and are semi-domesticated after being raised as livestock for many generations on ranches. Fewer than 30,000 wild bison are in conservation herds and fewer than 5,000 are unfenced and disease-free.
