American Bison Extraordinaire

"Hi, I'm ABE.  It's time to make me your National Mammal. OK?"

“Hi, I’m ABE. It’s time to make me your National Mammal. OK?”

Just this past December, a Bill to make the American Bison the National Mammal unanimously passed the U.S. Senate!  It now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration.  We here at Great Plains Trail Alliance say, “Well, it’s about time.” Our mascot, ABE (American Bison Extraordinaire) agrees.

I guess you could call it the “Bison Bill” or the “Buffalo Bill” if you like.  Heh, heh.

Here’s a link to a group trying to promote this idea.  Vote Bison

Let’s support them, and the movement to make the bison our National Mammal!

    Thanks for passing this along. The Bison IS the national mammal icon and should be officially recognized as such.

    I suppose I’m okay with this–though I was really hoping that I could be the National Mammal. Oh, well–just one more in a long line of disappointments.
