Bison Cow and Calf

This bison cow and calf are part of the only municipal-owned herd of bison in the country. Pretty cool, right? They live in Genesse Park, a City of Denver Mountain Park (Denver owns the herd also). I was headed up the hill one weekend and spotted the herd next to the interstate, so I circled around at the next exit to come back and get several shots. You can see on the cow the winter coat being shed. Several of the bison were actually rolling around upside down to get the old coat off.
