POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - The skull of an extinct giant bison with 7-foot-wide horns has been put on display at the Pocatello Regional Airport in eastern Idaho.

KIFI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2bgBaXL) in a story on Monday that the display near the baggage claim includes information about the species that roamed North American before becoming extinct about 20,000 years ago.

The skull was found in the 1950s along the shore of nearby American Falls Reservoir and is being loaned to the airport by the Idaho Museum of Natural History.

Museum Director Leif Tapanila says the skull is one of the best preserved giant bison specimens in the world.
