Wings Wildlife Park has a new family member: a ‘beefalo’ calf.

The calf is the result of an American bison bull bred with an Angus cow. Owner of Wings Wildlife Park, Colin Wing, initially wanted to breed the bison bull with bison cows. But after an issue with importing the bison cows, Colin decided to try something a bit different.

Colin talks to Rick Fontyn this morning about this quirky animal, and says that this is what happens when an old farmer has nothing to do in his retirement.
