Humans and bison Print

Behaviour of bison depends significantly on the behaviour of people communing with them: the fewer contacts with humans, the more skittish the animals are, while when encounters with humans are more frequent, they lose their fear of humans and can be even aggressive. bison bred in reserve are far more aggressive towards humans than bison living in the wild. In principle, adult bulls are the least skittish ones, and the ones which are the largest and the strongest ones, really feel the masters of the forest and treat humans with ostentatious indifference. No one ever managed to domesticate an adult bison, since taking excessive liberties with this grand ruminant ends very often with a violent and adverse reaction.
