Season 1

Episode 48: Buffalo Soldier

My girlfriend/vegetarian/cameraman refuses to watch this week’s video, so I won’t be insulted if some of you also skip over it.  But I’d be more impressed if you did watch.  For those of you that have the lust for blood, or like to see where your meat comes from, this is another one for you.

If you can call killing an animal humane, this is probably the most humane killing I’ve ever seen.  The two bison were dead before they hit the ground — they never knew it was coming.  Regardless, it’s hard to see an animal of such strength and beauty die and then get butchered. I visited Eichten’s Buffalo Ranch and Deutchland Meats on the second coldest morning of the year (I’m having bad luck with that) — In this case my camera actually stopped working.
