Our "History Buff"alo

Look who paid my library a visit this week.  That's a real HISTORY BUFFalo, I'd venture.

That's the official Indiana bicentennial bison for Morgan County grazing in our grand hall.  Ordinarily, I don't like other animals stomping around my turf, but when they're as big as this dude, I try to be more broadminded and less territorial.  The library has plenty of space for everyone.

The bison will be hanging out here until the end of August; then it's back to the migratory tour to places far and wide.  Here are some more photos taken by Scowl-Face, one of my trusty minions.  Some are close-ups, so you can see the bison's unique historical markings. That's tons of Morgan County history on the hoof, for sure.

When you visit the library to see our bison, remember NOT to touch!  He bites.  Unless it's a she.  I bet she bites, too.  So just touch with your eyes, okay?  'Nuff said.

August 23, 2016 Update:  His name's Brutus.  Really.  They held a contest and everything.

P.S.  Naturally, our musical closer comes from the Buffalo Springfield. Here's Neil Young's "Mr. Soul," on the LP Buffalo Springfield Again (1967).
