Just like humans animals can get lonely , and to have a friend by their side can really make an impact on them. Helen the big bison how never had much companionship but that was all cahnged by a calf named Oliver who was born on the farm and they became best firends. Every day Oliver runs from the barn to Helen’s pastrue and spends the day with her.

“The change in her demeanor is incredible, her joy is palpable,” sanctuary executive director Gwen Jakubisin told USA Today.“I catch them grooming each other which is amazing because I don’t think Helen has ever had that opportunity to express that motherly instinct before,” Jakubisin said.
