I read this quite a while back, it was a story written by Trent Loos about how the Federal Fish and Game was trying to remove these cattle from these islands that had been there for over a hundred years. http://www.loostales.com/written.htm Go here and click on The Last Frontier. It's really worth a read. I looked up some pictures off of Google and such and it is really amazing what adaptation and self management has done to these cattle.[/url]

From the distance that the photos appeared to be taken they better take a 30-06 and a good scope to the round-up

Just web search it and look through the sites they have up close pictures of the animals in the pens.

Probably just my warped sense of humour, but it seemed funny that after all the claims to be a hardy, disease free herd the picture they used on the opening page of their website to represent their animals is a skull from one of the cattle. Possibly not the strongest way to promote the breed....

I agree with Ollie... they look like a fast bunch of critters. Round up time must be interesting.

Take care.
