The wild animals


Forest of North Dakota
Forest of North Dakota

The great herds of bison that once roamed freely on the North Dakota prairie can now be seen in wildlife refuges and national park units. Elk and moose can be found in the forest areas between the Turtle Mountains and Pembina Gorge in the northeast, while elk also can be found in the Badlands, where wild horses also run. White-tailed deer are abundant throughout the state, and mule deer and antelope abound in the western part.

Bighorn roam the Badlands, and the howl of the coyote can be heard at night. Rabbits, foxes, and squirrels are common. Mink, muskrat, skunks, beaver, weasels, and an occasional raccoon also inhabit the state, and prairie dog colonies can still be found.

Birds


Birds are abundant. There are sage hens, sharp-tailed grouse, plover, and ruffed grouse, as well as ducks, geese, pelicans, gulls, grebes, and other water birds. There are also many hawks, owls, and eagles. The Souris Loop refuges contain almost 300 species of birds. The ring-necked pheasant, wild turkey, chukar, and Hungarian partridge have been brought into the state. Among the fishes that live in the waters of the state are pike, saugers, trout, salmon, walleyes, and muskellunge. "North Dakota" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
