Custer State Park Buffalo Round-up

Every year, Custer State Park rounds up the herd of buffalo to vaccinate and cull the herd.  The public is invited to watch.

Close to 12,000 people gathered to watch it.  About twice as many pickups as cowboys followed the herd down the ridge.

That was it!  They came in very easily – too easily, according to the newspaper.  It was the first year that no small groups of buffalo tried to break away from the herd.  The cowboys were a bit dissapointed that they didn’t get to work very hard!
