One of the last things anyone would associate with Huntington County is bison.

However, Huntington resident Blaine Kaylor is now the owner of a small herd of the unusual - for these parts, anyway - animal.

The decision to start raising bison, more commonly known as buffalo, came after a lot of research.

"Four years ago, I decided that I wanted to build a barn to raise beef cattle," Kaylor states. "I started building the barn and began to research bison."
