The young wood bison are temporarily staying at the U.A.F. Large Animal Research Station in Fairbanks.

More wood bison have been imported from Canada to Alaska as part of a decades long effort to restore the animal’s population it the state. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, some of the young animals will be added to a herd the state has established in Western Alaska.
