This area of the country is sometimes referred to as "Canada's Serengeti" because of the wildlife population. There is a very large, newly introduced herd of wild buffalo living down the highway from us. They cause quite a bit of trouble to traffic on the Alaska Highway during the busy season, along with the caribou, moose, stone sheep and elk.

This fellow came wandering up the other side of the highway yesterday, alone. I got as close to him as I dared. This herd is getting used to people stopping on the road and getting out to take their pictures but they are still wild and dangerous. 

He's huge! Isn't he beautiful!
