This was a beautiful specimen at the Game Farm. It is suggested that the American Bison is related to the Tibetan Yak. This theory is strengthened by the fact that close fossil relatives of the yak, such as Bos baikalensis, have been found in eastern Russia, suggesting a possible route by which yak-like ancestors of the modern American bison could have entered the Americas.
Spotted at the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington.
