This Hidden Sanctuary In Utah Is Home To One Of The Largest Herds Of Bison In America
When you think of a huge herd of bison, you probably think of Yellowstone, which has the largest herd in America. More than 3,500 animals live in that park, and 1,600 or so make up the second-largest herd at Custer State Park in South Dakota. Utah is home to the third (and fourth) largest bison herds. If you’ve never seen the bison who called Utah home, it might be time you did.
