Bison Could Roam on Land Owned by Denver International Airport
You may soon see bison on land that belongs to Denver International Airport. A plan is in the works to allow bison from the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge to roam on 200 acres owned by D.I.A.
According to the Denver Post, if the deal goes through, it would bring the bison right up to Pena Boulevard, the road that travelers take to the airport from Denver
Gov. John Hickenlooper has supported the idea and suggested viewing stations that overlook the 16,000-acre refuge next to the airport.
The refuge’s herd now numbers 122 bison after 18 calves were born this year. Wildlife officials plan to import 25 more bison to the refuge in October. I am sure the airlines will figure out some way to add a new "Bison Tax" to our flight costs.
