    Want to own your own bison?

    Here's your chance, a lot of 4 being auctioned off by the State of Ky.

    Kentucky park now taking bids for 4 bison

    UNION, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials have some unusual surplus property that's being made available for sale: four bison from Big Bone Lick State Historic Site in Boone County.

    The Kentucky Department of Parks is accepting bids for the bison, which include a 4-year-old cow and three bulls, each younger than a year old. They will be sold together.

    Department spokesman Gil Lawson told the Lexington Herald-Leader the park has a small herd of bison and has to sell some each year. He said the park likes to keep 10 to 14 and now has 12 in its 22-acre bison facility, including the four being sold. Four or five calves are born every spring.
    Bids are being accepted through Feb. 18.

    I don't have a steak in it but that sounds like a bunch of bull. I herd they weren't even that Big Boned.

    I'll show myself out.

    Everyone, you can get off I-75, pass right through Sugar Tit on your way to Big Bone Lick for a little beef on a stick.

    I'll show myself out too.

    Herd that when the bulls left the park, their moms said, “Bison”.
