(Washington, D.C.) Today President Obama signed the National Bison Legacy Act into law. The act officially makes the American bison the national mammal of the United States. It now joins the ranks of the bald eagle as an official symbol of our country. The Department of the Interior shared the news along with a list
of 15 facts about American bison. One of the most interesting facts? The
only place in the country where bison have lived since prehistoric
times is Yellowstone
National Park. Their bison population is estimated at 4,900, the largest on
any public land.
