In the heart of the prairies, a young girl and an orphaned bison calf, Lucy, forged an unlikely bond. She picked up Lucy as an orphaned bison calf and took her in. Just months ago, Lucy’s plight seemed dire. Bison calves are notoriously finicky with bottle feeding, and her survival odds were slim.

Yet, with unwavering dedication, the girl coaxed Lucy the orphaned bison calf to embrace a milk replacer. As each day passed, their bond deepened, trust blossoming.

Lucy’s transformation was miraculous. From a halter-broken calf to a sprightly, thriving bison, she began to reclaim her place among the herd. But her connection with the girl remained present.

Now adult-sized, Lucy’s robust frame belies her gentle spirit as she frolics alongside her human guardian. Their final embrace, captured on film, speaks volumes — a picture of resilience, and the nurturing power of friendship.

Share their heartwarming journey from orphaned bison calf to beautiful friendship, and let it inspire more stories of compassion and interspecies kinship.
