Baby Bison are Extremely Cute. Just Look at Their Furry Faces!

When people think of the American bison, they think "noble," "powerful," triumphant," "a little scary maybe." You might not think of the bison as an especially cute animal. Handsome, yes. Cute, not really.

After conducting an exhaustive study (spending around an hour on Google Image Search looking at pictures and giggling) we here at Modern Farmer are confident in our assessment of the baby bison, known as a calf, as an extremely cute animal. In case you doubt our scientific approach to this conclusion, we also created a control group, in which we spent an hour looking at a blank white square on Google Image Search, and found that our hypothesis proved correct: We giggled with delight much more often at the images of baby bison than we did at the blank white squares.

We believe this evidence strong enough to confirm our initial hypothesis, which is that baby bison are adorable.
