Protection of the American Bison / Buffalo
Great herds the American Bison / Buffalo once roamed over North America between the Appalachian Mountains on the east and the Rockies on the west. The Indians hunted them for centuries, and used their flesh for food and their hides for clothing. When the number of buffalo declined, many groups of Indians that lived on the plains found themselves without food. In 1850, about 20,000,000 of these animals still thundered over the western plains. Huge herds often halted early railroad trains by crossing the tracks.
