What did we think when we first saw buffalo on the plains?

    I assume you’re referring to the American Bison, commonly (though incorrectly) called buffalo. I’m not sure what people’s initial impressions were, but among European settlers they quickly became hunting targets for various reasons. Killing bison kept them from interfering with cattle and effectively disrupted Native American populations that depended on the bison for resources. Their skin and bones were collected while hunters left the rest to rot on the ground.
