Well, actually bison are always wild. This one was just doing what it do.
I got the chance to ride along with Metro Parks staff last Friday as they transported six bison from The Wilds to a new home at Battelle Darby Creek. It was awesome.
During the loading, I wanted to see what it was like when they charged into the trailer. Yes, that turned out to be exactly as scary as it sounds. I was hanging off the side, sticking my arm/camera through a slat. When it started moving, I ripped my arm back and nearly slipped off the running board.
When each bison found itself in the trailer, it stomped, huffed and bucked, its mass swaying and shaking the vehicles. After a few minutes, they settled down.
