Wyoming designated the American buffalo as official state mammal in 1985. A bull can weigh over 1800 lbs and stand 6’ tall at the shoulder. They roamed the American prairie by tens of millions were a way of life for the plains Indians. They were hunted to the brink of extinction - estimated that 300 - 500 remained when the
federal government passed stricter game laws in 1889. The bison is an inseparable part of American history; no other wild animal has played such a significant role in human affairs. Also a state symbol of KS and OK.
