VIDEO: Will this struggling baby bison make it to the top of that Yellowstone hill?
July 23, 2021
If you remember your own early childhood very well then you might recall how hard it was to get up stairs. If you're like us than more than once you had to turn four-legged, using your hands to make it up the stairs. In fact, we definitely remember our Mom telling us not to go up the stairs at church that way - it was unbecoming. That's the kind of patience required of a parent.
Speaking of patient parents, look how good these adult bison are at waiting for this tiny bison baby to make it up a steep embankment. The adults make short work of it, nearly a ton or more of muscle just gripping the hill and scaling it. Not so for the baby though, who quivers and shakes as it tries to make it's way up what must seem to it like a mountain.
As the person filming writes of the video, "Mom was forging up the hill then noticed the baby struggling. Life in the wilderness is difficult but the baby made it."
Amen to that. Thanks to patient mothers everywhere!
