After a year on the books, the American Bison has officially been made the National Mammal of the United States. The bill to make it so was introduced last year but made official on May 9 when President Barack Obama made it law.
Although the decision was supposedly unanimous by lawmakers, some in the public argued that the elk or even the jackalope should be made the national animal.
We’re glad they went with the bison.
What do you think?
Did the gov make the right call this time?
