The month of August is when the bison bulls start feeling a little frisky.
They head out into the herd, looking for the cutest cow(s)
and start “wallowing.”
– rolling around in the dirt –
is how they show off their strength and vigor.
There are other ways the bull shows off…
bellowing, belching, pawing the ground.
He will definitely fight for his gal, and these massive, hulkish beasts
can be seen fighting other bulls for the right to mate with the females in the herd.
It’s an amazing sight!!
