Bison are out in full force enjoying winter at Elk Island National Park (EINP).
While the summer seems like a friendlier time for visitors, winter is the most active time for the beasts.
"Unlike humans, bison have those huge fur coats that keep them pretty warm. In the summer when we're happy, they tend to be a bit overheated," said Catharine Brazeau, communications officer at EINP.
Plains bison and wood bison are the two main breeds at the park, with wood bison being the larger.
"If you were to come out to Elk Island, you might see some bison who are a little more active compared to in the summer when it's hot," added Brazeau.
According to counts done in 2017, EINP could have over 700 bison in the park.
Of course, if or when you do encounter bison, Elk Island National Park has some tips.
