Buffalo visits Bentley

A large grass-chomping visitor was in Bentley recently.

A large grass-chomping visitor was in Bentley recently.

Randy Giesbrecht from Red Deer was back with his “best friend,” two-year-old Beulah. He raised the now 800-pound-plus buffalo from birth, bottle feeding her special milk until she was more than six months old and giving her lots of extra special care.

“I try to work with her every day,” he says. He wants to keep her used to people and noises because he makes appearances with her at senior lodges and special events.

“I trust her and she trusts me,” he says as Beulah sucks on his fingers like a month-old calf.

He does ride Beulah, but admits he has been dumped a few times.

On occasion Beulah has sported the Bentley Generals hockey team banner.

Giesbrecht has made other visits to town before to ride around as practice. He no longer is allowed to ride Beulah in Red Deer.
