2023—There’s Mom!

A young Bison calf runs toward its mother, whose long shadow is seen in the early morning sun near the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park last week. We watched at least three Red Dogs, as these new born Bison in their orangey red coats are known, cavorting in the meadow. This one had temporarily lost sight of its mother. It would approach the mothers of its playmates only to be rejected by them. Finally, it spotted its mother across the meadow and it took off in a dead run to meet her. As soon as it found her, it went back to being a goofy young Bison, leaping, running, and twirling with not a care in the world.
