Chicago Tribune Headline: "Wild bison's birth in Illinois offers dose of optimism"
The wild bison, majestic beast,
Is back on our prairies. A few, at least.
30 were brought to Nachusa last fall
On 3, 500 acres in all.
And what's even better a new calf was born
On Illinois soil, more famous for corn.
So across the Mississippi, we welcome the calf
And old Teddy Roosevelt has the last laugh.
