DENVER (AP) - Denver Parks and Recreation officials have auctioned off about 25 yearling bison calves from the city’s two famous herds.

One of the calves fetched $2,500 from a Buena Vista rancher, bringing the total auction to $48,000. The money will be used to provide food and veterinary services for the remaining stock of nearly 60 animals.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/hhs5g5l ), the Parks and Recreation Department says maintaining the herd is part of an effort to help preserve the bison, which were nearly wiped out in the 1880s.
