Zach's Photo of the Week: Wild West


Harding Road in Clinton has hidden treasure. Well, actually, not so hidden; they're pretty big. On the Harding Farm property is a herd of American bison.

I always wonder when I see the herd of bison in Clinton, "What's the difference between bison and buffalo?"

This week's photo features a large bison - not a buffalo - from the Clinton farm.
