Yellowstone bison cannot fly, despite what it seems

Bison are surprisingly fast and agile, despite their incredible bulk. But can the colossal critters at Yellowstone National Park actually jump?

On Saturday the U.S. Department of the Interior shared a rare image that shows a bison leaping fully off the ground, with the Facebook description: “No, the bison at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming haven’t learned to fly. Yet.”

The agency added: “Despite weighing as much as 2,000 pounds, bison are agile and can run up to 35 miles per hour. They can jump over objects 5 feet high and have excellent hearing, vision and sense of smell.”
