Description: The bison from whom there were once about 60 millions was hunted by the Europeans up to the border of his eradication. The Indians used the buffalo who supplied them with meat, material for clothes, Wigwams and tools, in a very sparing and deferential manner. For many Europeans, however, the slaughter of the bisons was only one sport, and they left the bodies of the animals of the decay. Today thanks to intensive preventive measures her supplies have recovered in the USA and Canada again on about 30,000 copies.
