In 1995 the wolves were restored, now there are 13 packs and estimated more than 370 in Yellowstone. Wolverine and lynx are in the park but are rare to spot. Yellowstone is home to elk, black tail deer, white tailed deer, pronghorn deer, bighorn sheep, mule deer, moose, and bison. Within the past five years, mountain goats have entered Yellowstone. Many types of birds and fish as well as many smaller mammals.
This visit we were able to see swans, stork, and ducks (batteries were dead unable to capture a picture of) and the eagle I posted about in the post prior. I was sad I was not able to get any pictures of these animals.
We never saw a grizzly but we did see a black bear from the road side.
We saw many Elk. Yellowstone has the large amount of elk.
We saw black tailed deer.
This seagull was begging for our lunch one day.
Of course we saw Bison or Buffalo what some people call them. We went during Bison mating/dating season. This year Yellowstone has a high of five people being gored. Three of these five were from people not respecting the wild. They tried to think they were able to take selfies with bison who were less than five feet away from them.
