Small herd that broke off from the original introduced herd in Cataloochee. There was a ranger there, and I believe he said this herd had around 17 members. There was a bull with several cows and calves. It was evening. We didn't hear any bugling. I don't think the bull had a reason to! One ranger said he hadn't heard any bugling for a couple weeks. One said she had heard one the night before.
