CUSTER STATE PARK (AP) — It's a sign of spring at Custer State Park.

The first buffalo calf of the year has been spotted.

Park staff saw the newborn bull this week and he appears to be about a week old.

The park has about 860 bison going into the spring and expects around 400 calves. The herd size should be around 1,275 at the annual buffalo roundup in September.
