Buffalo Bisons Prepare Field After Brutal Winter


Buffalo, NY -- Opening day for the Buffalo Bisons is less than a week away and there are extra crews quickly working on getting Coca Cola Field ready after the tough winter."It's been a hard winter for everyone here in Western New York and it's presented a few challenges here," Brad Bisbing, the spokesperson for the Buffalo Bisions, said. "We haven't been able to mow... we would have at this point... and the snow drifts lasted a little bit longer than obviously we wanted."

Bisbing also says even though most of the snow has now melted the ground needs to finish thawing. "Right now there is still a bit of frozen ground... but as soon as that thaws out and we're very confident that in the next couple days it will and the field will drain great," Bisbing explained. "And with a little extra hard work we will be ready."

Ice Boom Removal Delayed


BUFFALO, NY - The Army Corps of Engineers will not be taking out the ice boom before the first of April.

The International Joint commission that governs the removal of the boom says the removal is being delayed due to all the ice on the lake. In fact, Lake Erie is about 95 percent covered in ice.

Last year, the boom was taken out on March 25. The latest time the boom has ever come out is May 3. That happened in 1971.


River Otter Pups Born at the Buffalo Zoo

The Buffalo Zoo welcomes two litters of North American river otter pups.

The two separate litters were born in early March at the Buffalo Zoo to nine-year-old sisters Daisy and Ellie. The father of both litters is a seven-year-old North American river otter named Rascal, who arrived at the Buffalo Zoo in 2012 from the Trevor Zoo in Millbrook, NY. These are the first North American river otter births at the Buffalo Zoo, and all three of the otters are first-time parents.

Both Daisy and Ellie are proving to be attentive mothers and have kept their litters in their dens. The pups are still too small to be on exhibit for the public, but Zoo officials expect them to be out in a few weeks. In the mean time, the Zoo will share updated photos and video footage of the pups on their Facebook page and displayed near the Otter Creek exhibit.
