ASHLAND, Neb. (KMTV) — The bison herd at the Wildlife Safari Park in Ashland grew by one after a calf was born May 27.

A spokesperson from the Wildlife Safari Park says bison calves will turn dark brown a couple months after birth, which is the same time their characteristic horns and hump begin to appear.

Visitors can see the auburn-colored calf roaming around the park with its mom and the herd.

The Wildlife Safari Park opened in 1998 and has played a pivotal role in conserving bison and educating the public about challenges impacting the animal, which is the national mammal of the United States.

The park is currently home to 33 bison, including the calf.
