Since the location of my observation was questioned, I feel I need to provide a clarification. As a frequent visitor to Antelope Island, it is unusual to visit the island without seeing a Bison. Essentially, all bison in the United States are under supervision/care of either a government or private entity. The Antelope Island bison are no different. There are about 750 resident head maintained by the Department of Natural Resources of the State of Utah.
Also note that the location has been obscured, so while the obscured coordinates place it in the middle of the water, the true coordinates are probably on land.
kueda, that's interesting as my map (both map and satellite) does show the location as being on the shoreline, on a developed trail, and most definitely on dry land. Does it show differently for other viewers? If so, is there something I have set that obscures the location?
It shows up for me as being out in the water east of Antelope Island. The location is automatically obscured for endangered/threatened species, so if that's what's going on here (buffalo are apparently "near threatened") then you can't change the display.
