Man, we really used to love killing shit. What a fucking disgrace.
20 to 30 million bison in north america down to 1000 at one point in time. Nowadays were back up to 500k
These guys seem to be proud on their genocidal achievement.
Thank god. Think of the global warming that was avoided by killing all these methane factories. These guys were environmentalists before it was cool.
/s for those who can’t read in sarcasm.
It’s kinda psycho to stand on a mountain of skulls
I read somewhere that this wasn’t entirely the result of people shooting them for sport or fun. Killing bison en masse like this also starved out Native Americans, and was therefore a deliberate strategy practiced by the government.
I remember seeing this in my high school history book.
” Bison bones were used in refining sugar, and in making fertilizer and fine bone china.” [https://rarehistoricalphotos.com/bison-skulls-pile-used-fertilizer-1870/](https://rarehistoricalphotos.com/bison-skulls-pile-used-fertilizer-1870/)
TIL sugar is not necessarily vegan.
Skulls for the Skull Throne!
Wait: wrong sub…
Pile o bones. Former name of Regina Saskatchewan.
Pretty assholish to pose next to thousands of skulls.
Bisons and Passenger Pigeons took big Ls. Wish I could see the natural wildlife before
