It's been said that you learn something new every day. I believe that really is true and a new video share shows it happened for a driver recently who learned there are bison in Waterloo, Iowa.

A couple of things to note: 1. these people appear to be from Alabama. 2. these are bison that are also known as buffalo to many. One more thing. You might want to mute the sound on this one unless you'd like to learn some new bad words as there is some NSFW dialogue here when the Alabama folk get surprised to see animals they didn't think we had here.

For those of us that live here, this isn't exactly breaking news. As IA mentions, there are at least a half dozen places in Iowa where you can see bison in Iowa if you want to. One of the most highly recommended would be the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. It's to the east of Des Moines and definitely worth a road trip if big hairy beasts are of interest to you.

A bison road trip isn't necessary though as this driver learned. Just keep your eyes open if you're cruising around Waterloo and a bison moment is possible.
