Our staff, and our visitors, will certainly miss the presence of these iconic, majestic animals. Whether they were seen slowly, methodically grazing or so perfectly laying in the open pasture tails swinging. Their silly and wild romps through the deep snow will forever stick in our memories as will the tossing, smashing, and interacting with enrichment items- especially Christmas trees. Those who were lucky enough to care for these animals will fondly remember the quiet and thoughtful training sessions and the attentiveness when the barn shift door opened. The loss of Sarah is difficult, but our team takes comfort in knowing she, and so many of our resident animals, are living long, full lives.
The Zoo is currently pursuing adding new bison to this habitat and we hope to be able to share updates over the next few months.
