Stampede Scenes
1 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The stampede scenes were filmed at the Lamar Valley Buffalo Ranch in Yellowstone National Park.

There were only 24 buffalo left in the world on 1901, so Congress appropriated funds in 1902 to prevent their extinction and the few wild buffalo in Yellowstone were gradually mixed with some ranch animals from Texas and Montana.

The park rangers in the past would sometimes stampede the herd for movies and visitors.

There are now 3,500..4,000 buffalo in YNP, but any that wander outside the boundaries are shot or rounded up and sent to slaughter.
