In the town of West Yellowstone, Montana, right outside of the park, there were several painted buffalo on display around town. This one was outside the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center.

This looks good! Also with us in Austria there are such sculptures – indeed, from cows.

@Loner: Yes, I have seen one of those cows in Austria. I have seen some also painted on horses in Texas.

I love what looks like late afternoon light, but your photo also reminds me of the two dying bison that had to be euthanized at Hershey Park in PA this week, due to flooding. ;(

@franz: I will have some "real" shots of the mighty bison for you later on, Franz.
