Did you know that the millions of buffalo roaming the West when white settlers arrived (to shoot them to near extinction) were an anomaly? According to the book 1491, the plagues unleashed by explorer Hernando DeSota’s pigs some 100 years previous wiped out over 90 percent of the native American population—who’d kept the buffalo population in check. In fact, the Indians used them as a kind of free range meat locker. No chance of that happening now. nbcmontana.com reports that Montana’s Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks are advising the hunters helping keep the buffalo numbers down not to shoot each other or anyone else. Sensibly enough. Although it must be said, judging from this video, that appears to be the greatest danger involved.
