Wisent

This Wisent, or European Bison (Bison bonasus) seems to be staring me down at Zoo Miami. The Wisent is a Eurasian bison (one of two remaining species of bison along with the American Bison) was hunted to extinction in the wild, in the early 20th century. It was hunted for it's hide and to make drinking horns.
