Bison Paddock

The Bison Paddock is just as its name suggests: a large enclosing where bison sleep, eat and live. Situated along John F. Kennedy Dr., the Bison Paddock is an exhibit of the San Francisco Zoo; within it, these calm, roaming and hairy creatures have been enduring the curious glances of visitors to Golden Gate Park since 1984. Brought from Wyoming, the current bison are the second-generation members of an 1894 herd. A fun fact? The females have broader shoulders than the males.
