I was back in Winnipeg, MB over the weekend. During the past couple of years, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to the Canadian prairies a handful of times. However, this was the first time I actually got a few days off while in the city. Though I was plagued by a cold (I blame the dramatic change in climate during the week and the snowfall in Winnipeg), I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go spend an afternoon with bisons.
FortWhyte Alive is a nature sanctuary located just a few minutes away from downtown Winnipeg. They have a farm, a bison heard, lakes, a handful of trails and all sorts of fun activities for the whole family.
Seeing the majestic bison in person is quite special, I had never seen one before. There were some cute babies in the heard that kept following their mother’s every move. It was really neat to get so close to these animals. It’s sad to think that man almost hunted them to extinction. I’m happy to see that people are now working to keep these beautiful animals alive.
