warning buffalo are dangerous


Excuse me, but who pushed who to the brink of extinction?

    Nice photo.

    But are buffaloes really dangerous? I always thought they are relatively tame animals.

      AS—I would NOT want to test that ‘tame’ thought of yours regarding buffalo—they are quite HUGE–and standing face to face with one makes it clear that you do NOT want to tick one off–ever. Big Smash, if you get the picture. lol.

    Very nice and poignant tribute to a great animal and it’s current situation.

    I hardly know what to say. My feelings are mixed, here. Today is so different and the result of many ravages to the land and the natural settings, years ago. I was so misinformed about our dustbowl days until I read a book on it. We even lost all our native prairie grasses during that time period. Our ignorance of land and ecosystems are evident in every facet of nature. I sit stunned listening to the criticism that nature-lovers take for their views, especially the global warming issue. Whether we are causing it or not, if there are things we can do to assist and alleviate some of the damage from it, then who cares what caused it, let us do something about it. I wonder if this sign is there as much to protect the buffalo as to warn the people off.

      Hi Leslie. In this specific case the sign is to keep people from getting too close. If you click and enlarge the photo you will find the buffalo in the landscape. I swear they saw me coming and moved as far away as possible to evade my camera-and possibly me too-because they were right up against that fence when I parked the car.
      I share your ‘stun’–I wish everyone would quit aruing and just do the right things to solve a problem that is of importance to all of us. And for once I wish we could do it RIGHT because that’s the ONLY way to do things that will work—as opposed to the usual profit driven motives of corporate minds–most of whom have willfully and knowingly contributed to all the messes we now face. Yes–knowingly and willfuly. Chevron’s antics–fatal antics–in Ecuador were willful and made with full knowledge of the consequences of dumping toxic waste. This insanity has to stop asap IF our children are to have a decent planet to live on.
      Stunned with you.

    I think it’s a typo. It’s supposed to say “Buffalo IS dangerous” and is referring to the city.

    Beautiful photo, I really love the soft clouds 🙂
