The splendour of the Bison!

Viewing the bison at Lake Audy is a memorable experience for many visitors to Riding Mountain National Park. This captive herd of 44 animals has the run of its 500 hectare enclosure located in the south central portion of the park. For most of the year, these animals do not require any special attention from resource conservation specialists at the park, but every winter, a bison handling operation takes place to vaccinate the new calves and assess the general health of the animals.
