As the first calves of the season are born in Custer State Park, Gary Enright, director of the 1881 Courthouse museum, joins Dakota Midday to talk about a creature with a 500,000 year history in North America. Revered, hunted, and nearly dashed  into extinction, the American Bison has a storied history of loss and renewal.
