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.
