In a Rut
Common Name: American Bison
Scientific Name: Bison bison
Creator: Jerrett, Jennifer
Description: Male bison "bellow" in order to announce their presence and establish dominance in a herd. During the mating season or "rut," bellowing becomes more prevalent, creating a signature sound of midsummer in Yellowstone. Take a drive with Jennifer Jerrett across the park's Northern Range as she goes on a listening safari for the sounds of bison.
