American Bison "Bison bison"
American Bison "Bison bison". Height; 6 feet tall, length; 10 feet long and weight: 2,200 pounds. The last wild bison in Oregon was killed in the Owyhee Mountains in Eastern Oregon in 1840. These animals were raised on a ranch near Halfway, Oregon and are in no-way tame. Invade their space and they are apt to do a tap dance on you that you won't remember. We drove through the herd in a Lincoln Town Car to make sure they got a little exercise and the car got stuck in a "buffalo wallow". We had to call the owners son on a cell phone and he pulled us out with a backhoe. The calves are cute but they soon outgrow it.
