Blind Bison Refuses To Love Anyone, Then She Meets A Cow’s Calf And Everything Changes

by Kristin Avery
Kristin shares a Chicago home with a dog, a rabbit, two cats, a husband, and an 11-year-old daughter.

What’s that saying — there’s someone out there for everyone? This might be especially true in the animal world.

Animals love unconditionally, and they don’t care about appearance, age, or social status. Most of the time they bond with their own species, but not always.

Helen, a blind bison, hadn’t made any animal friends in the nearly three years she lived at the animal sanctuary in Oregon. That is, until she met Oliver, a calf born to a cow living on the sanctuary as well, born in February.

Before Oliver, this shy girl spent most of her time alone in the fields.

But everything changed when baby Oliver arrived. Now, these two beauties are inseparable.

Each morning, Oliver runs out of the barn to find Helen. They spend their days nuzzled together in the sunny pasture, nose to nose, grooming and snuggling. They enjoy meals, naps, and spend almost every waking minute together.

Oliver’s fur has even changed colors — he may even resemble Helen more than his actual mom. Their owner believes this is a result of their intense bond.

We can learn so much from animals. Sometimes it seems like they are way beyond humans in their capacity to see beyond outward appearances. Helen and Oliver certainly have much to teach us about acceptance and kindness, regardless of how someone looks.
