Head-Butting Buffalo.

Concrete Buffalo

Large concrete buffalo denote the Buffalo Trace between the Illinois prairies and the Kentucky salt licks.

[Jeff Foushee, 01/16/2021]

Sculpted in 2018 by locals David Ruckman and Pat Kelley out of two 16-ton slabs of Indiana limestone. The Trace apparently wasn't wide enough to accommodate the head-butting buffalo, named Tatonka East and Tatonka West.
