2/13/2004: Pet buffalo



It's cold and lonely in Alberta, in western Canada, and surely you might wish you had a warm body around to share the northern winters.

Jim and Linda Sautner are bison ranchers out there, and they have 270 of the beasts, but this one found its way into their home after being abandoned by its mother, and is now their pet. He became unusually tame after they raised him by hand. Bailey the Buffalo is 725 kilograms in weight (1,600 pounds) and enjoys watching TV in the couple's living room.

Would they ever eat Bailey? No. But they do eat his brethren, and they describe a Christmas dinner with guests where they all had bison meat with Bailey happily looking on from the background.

full story

Ok. He can come in the house, but if he ever jumps up on the couch...



Griff  Friday Feb 13 10:41 AM

Pete is still resisting the call of the bison. I have the girls on board, this photo will close the deal. Thanks for coming through Tony, you da man!



Beestie  Friday Feb 13 11:12 AM

1,600 pounds! That's 533 pounds per hoof when he's walking - how does he not go through the floor?? And is he housebroken? I don't see him fitting through the doggy door and didn't think Bison were smart enough to say "take me outside."

More questions then answers on this one.



Undertoad  Friday Feb 13 11:18 AM

At least they had the wings removed.



FileNotFound  Friday Feb 13 11:55 AM

I wonder if that guy dresses like that all the time...

At least it's not a pet bear or something...



Beestie  Friday Feb 13 12:20 PM

Hey, there's somethin' funny goin' on here...



Griff  Friday Feb 13 12:28 PM

Canadians love their whale penis.

As someone who moved into that area about six months ago (this story has been all. over. the local news the last couple of days), I can attest that in all probability, yes.

A lot of people in this neck of the prairie actually wear that kind of garb on a daily basis. I wouldn't have believed it myself before I came here.



Undertoad  Friday Feb 13 01:47 PM

Really Quz, I would have pegged you for a different response to this one.

I'm not saying anything! It's all good.

As for B's eye for backgrounds, well I do need those warm bodies myself in the lonely Pennsylvania winter.



Cam  Friday Feb 13 01:49 PM

I wonder what it was like bottle feeding that thing. Calves push you around enough when they get older and think you're going to feed them.

intact Buffalo


Happy Monkey  Friday Feb 13 03:38 PM

That picture is clearly ridiculous. Buffalo wings are much smaller, and a Buffalo can have up to 250 wings, hidden under their fur. They use them as fans, to cool down. The wings can be harvested, because they grow back.

Just a little science lesson.

Pet Buffalo

Just a few days ago a cow walked through a bank and now a bison (Buffalo?) in a kitchen reminds me of a dreadful flood in our valley some 20 years ago. Many farm animals drowned and one, a huge dairy cow with massive horns floated across garden walls, and through the large kitchen window at the home of my aunt. When the floodwaters subsided my aunt and her family returned home to find a swollen dead cow draped across the kitchen floor. I think it was the talk of the valley for many years. T'anks for the memory (Buffalo/Bison wings??) Firstimer and strangely nervous!



smillie  Friday Feb 13 07:02 PM

Oh give me a home
where the Buffalo roam
and I'll show you house full of dirt.

Hmmm. Doesn't rhyme. Oh well.



Happy Monkey  Friday Feb 13 08:05 PM

Um, that's not dirt.

Yeah but if this guy's bison sleeps in his bed that's a whole different story. Or two. Beastality aside, what if it rolls over on him in the middle of the night? Or stretches out and he gets a hoof to the jaw? Or the groin...

Quzah. <-- look fucker, I signed my post! HAH! I'll sign it again!

Quzah!!!

And again!!!

Quzah.

You know, Quzah's alright for being a vegan...

Of course they do, especially when they're having their picture taken or steppin out. Where did you think western wear came from, Hollywood?


Olikat  Saturday Feb 14 09:10 PM

WOah! at first sight I thought that dude was a "vertically challenged" individual! Now that would have been a story!




BTW: CDNrascal created the artwork for the screening of that oven door. Can we get a round of applause for him?

Well a german actor went for a reality show to the djungle for 2 weeks. When he came back, he had a monkey living in his house. So his wife told him either the monkey or herself will leave the house. And he choose the monkey



chrisinhouston  Monday Feb 16 11:02 AM

I don't even want to think about what goes into house training a buffalo. Instead of a rolled up newspaper you'd need a 2 x 4.

NPR had a radio essay a couple of years ago about a couple that kept a horse as a house pet. It slept in their room and ate meals with them in the kitchen. They had to substantially upgrade their floors to hold the weight. It was actually house trained and would go to the door when it wanted to go out and take care of business.

My exwife has 4 English Mastiffs totaling about 1000 lbs. which is a heck of a lot of dog for one little house. I'd send her the link for this image but we are on pretty good terms now and I wouldn't want to screw it up!

Large house pets

I just did a search on Google for "Large House Pets" and got a hit for http://www.apeculture.com/FATPETS.HTM which was pretty amusing, it's titled Obese House Pets Petition Richard Simmons for Help. So much for finding any other large house pets like the buffalo.

He chose the monkey to stay or leave?

Great link Chris, thanks.

If you go into Central Pennsylvania, you'll find a lot of places that sell bison burgers, claiming that the meat is healthier.

I don't know about the health benefits, but it was tasty.

Bison is actually healthier than beef, it has less cholesterol for starters and less fat. It tastes remarkably similiar to beef, but it is usually drier in my experience.


xoxoxoBruce  Monday Feb 16 11:45 PM

Lancaster County (PA) has a bunch of Bison herds.



lumberjim  Tuesday Feb 17 02:52 AM

Probably, it is normal dress for ranchers and farmers up here. No more out of place than a suit in a restuarant on Wall Street


chrisinhouston  Tuesday Feb 24 10:43 PM

I had ground cabrito (goat) for dinner last night, really low fat and good taste.
