[VIDEO] Check Out These Super Cute Bison Calves on Exhibit at the Bronx Zoo

The newest residents at the Bronx Zoo are a six purebread bison calves in the herd gifted to the zoo by two Native American tribes, the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux..

The calves were born to a herd of seven females and one male that arrived at the zoo from Ft. Peck, Montana in November 2016. The herd was an historic gift from the Assiniboine and Sioux tribes and was significant because the Fort Peck bison are from the Yellowstone National Park bloodline, and are among the few pure bison remaining. The vast majority of present-day bison have trace amounts of domestic cattle genes, a reflection of past interbreeding efforts when western ranchers tried to create a hardier breed of cattle.

See the herd at the Bronx Zoo anytime during normal operating hours.
