Alberta man’s unusual pet: a 1,600-pound bison

By Dr. Andrew Jones

Our pets come in many shapes and sizes, and Bailey is one of those.

When Jim Sautner, who lives near Spruce Grove, Alberta, moved into his new house, he had to establish new rules for the family pet: no coming inside.

The reason: his pet is a 1,600-pound bison.

Bailey Jr., named after Sautner’s first pet bison, Bailey Sr., who died in 2008, used to come inside and watch TV and drink water out of the sink.

“Sometimes, he’d come into the bedroom; sometimes he’d jump in the bed and that didn’t work out too well, generally,” Sautner told NPR in 2011. “As he got bigger, he kept taking too many blankets, so we had to ask him to move outside.”

Now the low-maintenance bison stays outdoors, eating hay and oats and grooming himself.

Here is the tiny pet 🙂
