Bison on Antelope Island



With the rising temperatures of summer the Bison on Antelope Island need to find a reliable freshwater source.

There are 40 freshwater springs that are located near the shoreline of the island and the Bison make use of them to quench their thirst.

The Bison move down from the grassy slopes in large herds like the one in the image above. They can tie up traffic on the roads for quite some time.
