ALCAN Extra: Where do the buffalo roam?

By  | 

WATSON LAKE, Yukon On the Alaska Highway, make sure you yield to wood bison. Not that you'll always have a choice.

We spotted the Nordquist Herd between Watson Lake and Liard Hot Springs. Animals large and larger were taking up the entire roadway, walking slowly and blocking traffic. Occasionally a line of cars could slowly roll past.

Motorists didn't seem to mind.

Large trucks can cause the bison to run off in to the woods, but it doesn't take long for them to return.

Check out the video below that we shot while moving past the slow moving herd.
