  •  I'd think most everyone knows buff are bison (0+ / 0-)

    Never seen any studies on ethnicity of hunters and I for sure wouldn't classify buffalo (sorry) behavior as peaceful or warlike, they just are. Assigning human attributes to animals is a common problem. They even have a name for it. Anthropomorphism.

    Buff are also quite a ways from extinction. Officially listed as "near threatened" iucn ranchers are actually the reason they aren't listed as threatened as 97% of the animals are actually raised by ranchers. I can understand folks not wanting them around, they are big and not turned by fences. They'd wreak havoc in most cities of the midwest.

    Never tried the meat, and I reserve my opinion on all meat until I've used it quite a bit. I have eaten a lot of true buffalo and find it tough like I'd imagine shoe leather.

    I don't have an opinion one way or another about the issue as I'd need to hear a lot more from different view points.
