[VIDEO] Check Out This New Herd of Purebred Bison at the Bronx Zoo

The newest residents at the Bronx Zoo are a herd of purebred bison, gifted to the zoo by two native american tribes, the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux. There are eight bison in total, seven females and one male.

The animals are from the Yellowstone National Park bloodline, which is one of the few genetically pure herds remaining. The majority of bison now have a small amount of domestic cattle genes from past interbreeding efforts to produce a hardier cattle breed, according to the Bronx Zoo.

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