Bull bison can weigh as much as 1900 pounds. Despite the weight, they are agile and sometime graze alone, miles away from their herds. They seem so independent that I used to think, they can not be scared of predators such as wolves. However, my believes were shattered when I had a family of four on a wildlife tour. The husband spotted a gray wolf running casually near a herd of bison. Thirty minutes later, I saw a black wolf running occasionally, and three or four times lying in the dirt near a river and on the grass. Deliberately, it moved closer and closer to a herd of bison. Then I saw huge bull bison aware of the wolf’s presence, running into a group. Finally there were five bison, four of them enormous. They mustered the courage to face the enemy. They moved in formation and walked towards the wolf. The scene was reminiscent of wildebeest running away from a lion after a surprise attack by the later, and then gathering forces as a group and facing the enemy. I always thought bison are majestic and no predator might put fear and trepidation in them. But I was wrong!You could be lucky to see just about any of the following wildlife:Grizzlies and black bears in Yellowstone and Grand Teton Park are probably about 1000.
