The bison is the largest of all North American land mammals. Great bison herds once roamed this area and provided food, clothing and shelter for the American Indians and pioneers. Hunted to near extinction, the last of the wild bison was seen in Kentucky around 1800. The park’s herd is an effort to reestablish these animals at Big Bone Lick.
