Buffalos, not buffolo's, should be hunted and eaten as they are great sources of protein and could feed many hungry families.

If you're gonna eat a buffalo, let it be free-range, then! One of the reasons heart-disease is to prevalent in the US today is because our beef comes from cows that are penned up and just get fat all day. There's no lean meat there.
Run, Ralphie, run!

The Ralphies have it better than most people. Have you ever seen where they are raised? They have a huge ranch where they live both prior to becoming "Ralphie" and I think when they retire. They are all bred at this ranch. They are treated about as good as UGA. Sure, UGA doesn't "run the field" (or at least I don't think he does) but he does endure extreme heat on the sidelines sometimes. I am sure an arguement could be made to free all animal mascots.

And, there really isn't anything much prettier than seeing "free range" buffalos!

And, I just used UGA as an example as that was one animal mascot that I thought off of the bat.

Uh, I's reel sory maaam. I tries to kep up but mi mindd dont wurk to gud.

In the 1800's hunting, changes in land use and government policies brought the bison near to extinction. In the early 1800's the bison populationnumbered in the tens of millions. By the end of that century there were fewer than 1,000 left. However, in recent years interest in raising bison has grown among breeders, and today there are about 150,000 in North America. They are no longer endangered.

Oops,

Look what else I found by READING...

Hunting of wild bison is legal in some states and provinces where public herds require culling to maintain a target population. In Alberta, where one of only two continuously wild herds of bison exist in North America at Wood Buffalo National Park, bison are hunted to protect disease free herds of public (reintroduced) and private herds of bison.

In Montana, a public hunt was re-established in 2005, with 50 permits being issued. The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission increased the number of tags to 140 for the 2006/2007 season. Advocacy groups claim that it is premature to re-establish the hunt, given the bison's lack of habitat and wildlife status in Montana.

I really thought someone that would snap at someone so quickly would at least know what they were talking about. I don't know about the panda, but I do know a grizzly that needs to be barbequed!
