The Legend Of North Dakota’s Albino Bison Is A Fascinating Tale

One of the most iconic animals in America is the mighty bison. In fact, it’s the country’s official national mammal. North Dakota is part of the vast plains that millions of bison used to roam on, and today hundreds still do within the state. They’re an integral part of the state – both as part of the native wildlife and even as things like being the mascot for NDSU. The Peace Garden State is even home to the National Buffalo Museum, which was also home to the only true albino bison in North Dakota.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Even though the white bison are no longer with us, a visit to the National Buffalo Museum is a must for anyone visiting North Dakota. You can learn more about it by visiting its official website.
