CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A bison calf has been born on Wyoming’s Wind River Indian Reservation for the first time in 130 years.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2pM1Bhi ) the baby bison was born Wednesday into a herd of 10 animals reintroduced to the reservation last fall.

Jason Baldes with the Eastern Shoshone tribe says the bison calf is “an honor bestowed upon us by the Creator.”

White settlers nearly eradicated bison from the West in the 19th century.

Antelope and bighorn sheep also have been successfully restored to the reservation after severe declines due to hunting.
