Prior to European settlement, the American Bison numbered thirty to seventy million. Slaughtered for food, skins, and "sport", and in efforts to lay siege to Native Peoples, herds were so drastically decimated that by 1900 fewer than a thousand Bison remained. Management and rescue efforts have brought their current number up to 65,000, but few of these are free-ranging. This notecard depicts an artist's rendering of the Bison commonly seen in Yellowstone. Notecard measures 7" x 5", is blank on the inside, and includes an envelope.
