OTTAWA, Ill. (WMBD) — Buffalo Rock State Park has some additional exciting news on top of its reopening Friday.
The state park announced a brand-new resident: a female bison. Staff said a three-year-old bison named Cocoa gave birth to the calf this Tuesday. While the calf does not have a name yet, employees said they are considering a naming contest for local schools to participate in.
The park has reopened after being closed from the COVID-19 pandemic, but certain things like water fountains remain closed.
