Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield happily welcomed three baby bison this year. The third and final bison cow in the Wildwood Zoo herd gave birth to her calf on Friday, July 13th - almost exactly two months after the original two were born.
This is the first time since 2009 that Mavis, Maude, and Molly have all had calves in a single year. The herd is now up to eight bison. Though the calves are a bit more sensitive to the hot weather we have had, all three seem to being doing well.
For the next several weeks, expect to see the young calves right by mom’s side until they become comfortable mingling with the rest of the herd. You can see the moms and their babies in the south pasture from the Large Animal Drive.
