One Final Thought; Spring Wrestling Match
As the spring snows melted away, the herd instinct grew stale and the bison
herds of Theodore Roosevelt National Park were restless. Huge shaggy heads bobbed
up and down as they strolled toward an unknown destination, occasionally dropping
their heads to push the snow away searching for green grass. The scene was pastoral
until a small faction broke away from the main herd in a mad stampede. The energy
of youngsters could not be completely dissipated in a short run across the prairie.
They dropped their heads and butted one another, head to head, in a playful
duel that was very different from the aggressive fighting that goes on between
mature bulls in the breeding season. This image reminds me of the energetic
enthusiasm of the young that is especially common in the early spring and how
patterned behavior of the older generations is often reflected in the young.
