"Banff - Buffalo: About 1½ miles to the other side of the village is an enclosed park containing a number of specimens of native wild animals, such as buffalo, elk, moose, mountain sheep and mountain goat. Here is seen part of the buffalo herd - one of the few remaining of what was, fifty years ago, the predominating animal of Western Canada, which roamed the prairies by millions."
