Photos from the September 2007 Buffalo Pickup in Rye, Co.


Below are some pictures from the buffalo pickup this weekend in Rye, Colorado. 15 Buffalo, donated by the Danylchuck Ranch were delivered to Pine Ridge this weekend. The buffalo will be distributed between three families working together to recover land and restore the native ecology on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The buffalo are carefully sorted into a tub to be guided down an alley into the trailers. Prior to transport all the buffalo must be tested for diseases and treated for parasites by a veterinarian. The buffalo are then loaded into trailers for the Journey to South Dakota.
