Bison Survives Lightning Strike, Now on the Mend



Here's an update from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on "Sparky."  The tough (and lucky) Bison, who lives on Iowa's Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge, received a lightning hit in January last year.  Refuge staff had been concerned the herd would shun him and Sparky might require individual care, but he's taken a turn for the better.  Checkout this update and wonderful video by the USFWS.
