Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam — as long as you have the number of a really good carpet cleaner.
A Texas couple has turned their ranch house into a little slice of the great plains by taking in a pet bison and giving it free run of the place. The 11-year-old beast, named Wild Thing, even has its own bedroom.
“He’s a house pet,” owner Ronnie Bridges, 60, told InsideEdition.com. “Outside, he plays really rough but inside the house, he’s really a gentleman.”
Bridges and his wife Sherron, 44, took in the 2,500-pound bison when it was just a calf, after they sold their herd of 52 bison in 2004 to pay for medical bills.
