Buffalos Roam- 04.26.05
These are life becoming art… in Pikesville, Maryland… see NYTimes. The images are just priceless, truly capturing what i always wondered home on the range meets suburbia would function like. I will now count the buffalo jumping tennis nets when i can’t fall asleep at night.
UPDATE: thanks to jus, new pics on the NYTimes… and additional information that’s heart breaking…

Mr. Berg has been raising bison for about eight years, he said, but no more.By midday, as the last of the bison were being herded into the trailer, Mr. Berg had decided their fate.“It’s out of hand,” he said. “They’re going to the slaughterhouse, and they’re going to be buffalo burgers.”
Can you believe it? I wish we had the means to have people adopt them or something… or move them to some wide ranging space… poor things, NO WONDER THEY RAN AWAY!
