Bison Is Canada Man's 'Best Friend'the daily dish
A man from Alberta, Canada, is gaining attention for an unlikely, interspecies friendship. Jim Sautner's BFF is a 2-year-old, 1,500-pound bison named Bailey Jr. According to the CBC, Sautner even used to let Bailey Jr. hang around the house like a dog, drinking from a sink and watching TV in the living room. (Since Sautner moved into a new house, Bailey Jr. is not allowed inside.) As his name implies, Bailey Jr. is not Sautner's first bison pal. His first pet bison, Bailey Sr., died in 2008. But Sautner says being second in a sequence of Baileys doesn't make Bailey Jr. any less special. "He's my best friend," Sautner said. "He's my buffalo."
