per Wikipedia: The American bison (Bison bison), also commonly known as the American buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds. Their range once roughly comprised a triangle between the Great Bear Lake in Canada's far northwest, south to the Mexican states of Durango and Nuevo León, and east along the western boundary of the Appalachian Mountains.[2] Because of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century, the bison nearly went extinct and is today restricted to a few national parks and other reserves.

No....I didn't realize they are the same!! How shocking to find they are!! Thank you very much for rescuing me from my pathetic ignorance.

Wow, all of this hassle, and for what. I uploaded the photo yesterday and return today for all of this….. Buffalo or bison, who cares? I simply left the title on the photo that was given by hansrico.com and didn't give it another thought. Doesn't everybody realize that the American Buffalo and the Bison are one and the same? And how many really care? I for one don't.

The only interesting thing to do in Alberta is skiing at Sunshine Village...especially spring skiing. Banff and Jasper are pretty good for camping and I love the scenic Glacier Highway.

Toronto and all other parts of Canada ARE very different from Calgary & the whole of Alberta. The Alliance party was born there after all ! We are cultured, sophisticated, broad-minded; we know the true name for those animals. Albertans are a bunch of rednecks working on the tarsands, drinking beer at the local water hole till drunk, putting their John Deere hats on, climb in their big-tire trucks that have fluffy dices, crank up the music and go shoot some pool, drink some more while listening to western music; go in the alley to vomit. Their bellies are so big the pants hang down and you can see the crack in their asses. Burp... Tim Horton, from the Maritimes, has buffalo burgers because they don't want to offend your backwardness. Oh yeah, being very narrow-mined you ostracized K.D. Lang, a great western (better as a blues singer), when you found out she was gay.

I was born and raised in Manitoba, in Toronto temporarily with my job. I have been to the Riding Mtn Ntl Pk many times. There is a BISON enclosure quite near to Lake Audy with a captive bison herd. That's how Manitobans referred to it. Check Parks Canada's web site www.pg.gc.ca and you'll see it's referred as the Bison enclosure. As for Wood Buffalo National Park, it's in northwestern Alberta. Parks Canada does not want to offend Albertans by changing the name. After all, our stupid Prime Minister is from Alberta - a true born-again Alliance idiot. He depends on Albertan rednecks and yahoos for votes. O Canada, my home and native land......... :)

Homo sapien is undoubtedly correct torontonian, you are not from Canada at all unless Toronto is very different from Calgary. We also have a World Heritage Site near Macleod, Alberta that is known as the Smashed in-head Buffalo Jump. There are lots of interpretative displays there and nobody that provides information there ever says bison. I have never seen ground buffalo or ground bison for sale in any Alberta store, much less steak. We do, however, have a Tim Horton's restaurant that frequently has "Buffalo Burgers" on it's menu.

Everybody knows there are no buffalo in Canada. There used to be some but they were long ago eaten by polar bears. There aren't even very many people left up there. Just bears, seals, and a few moose . Plenty of walrus , though.

Then why is Canada's largest national park, which is in Alberta, called Wood Buffalo? I have been to Alberta very often and can attest that everybody there calls them buffalo. This is also true of Manitoba, which is right next to Ontario (home of Toronto) where there is a large prairie area enclosure at Riding Mountain National Park known as the Buffalo enclosure that houses the native animals. Obviously torontonian, you are not from Canada at all.

When you refer to "almost everybody knows them", do you mean everyone on this planet or Americans? I'm from Toronto, Canada, and we call ours (the ones in Alberta and British Columbia) bison. The stores sell bison steak or bison ground beef.....

The scientific name for this animal is Bison bison, thus to call them a bison is correct. However, the common vernacular name is Buffalo, the name by which almost everybody knows them. Usage makes the language and thus it IS correct to call them Buffalo even though they are quite distinct from the African and Asian buffalo species. The scientific name for human beings is Homo sapiens. But I would suggest that you not call everybody that you encounter a HOMO, even though you are technically correct.

What's a yankee?
2011-11-19 06:42:54
Bull Shit ! Or rather, Buffalo Shit ! YOU can call 'em bison or bobcats, or butt-faced bull frogs, but everybody else in North America calls 'em buffalo, has always called 'em buffalo and will probably always call 'em buffalo, regardless of what any of you smart ass yankees say !
2011-11-19 06:25:12
Ya can call 'emz as you want, but they are still bison. Buffalo are only in Africa and Asia.

Pretty picky roamings, for a user making their first comment ever.

While it is true that American bison are not true buffalos, no one calls them that. Calling a buffalo a bison is rather like calling a crawfish a crayfish, or a possum an o'possum. Maybe technically correct but a bit stilted. Besides, did you ever hear of a famous cowboy named Bison Bill ?

Your comment is also 'first ever', Roamings. Why don't you write under your own name of K9 Poster?
2011-11-18 12:14:32
Pretty picky roaming, for a user making their first comment ever. You are technically correct, but also quite wrong as the plural for both bison and buffalo is the same as the singular, bison and buffalo, neither one ever takes the added "s" to make a plural.

No buffalos in North America; they are bisons
