CUSTER (AP) — Custer State Park was holding its 46th annual buffalo roundup on Monday.
The roundup began as a way to manage the buffalo in the park and has developed into a tourist event. Last year, about 14,000 people came to watch. KELO-TV reports that a group of nine photographers has come from France this year to get shots of the action.
KEVN-TV reports that activities began Sunday with an arts fair and a chili cook-off.
The park each November auctions off some of the buffalo to keep the size of the herd in check. Up to 500 animals will be auctioned on Nov. 19.
