Tourism for Locals: Golden Gate Park is Where the Buffalo Roam

If one listens to the opening lyrics of the famous Western tune “Home on the Range,” you'd think that to find a place where the buffalo roam would be somewhere along the Great Plains of Kansas or Oklahoma.

Well, the state song of Kansas totally got it wrong when it came to San Francisco because the massive beasts with shaggy, brown heavy course fur, short horns, and can weight anywhere between 700 to 2,200 pounds have a home in our urban jungle — in Golden Gate Park of all places.

Totally gives a new meaning to the phrase “Welcome to the West.”

Also, fun fact: it's bison, not buffalo.
