Where the Bison Roam (START TRIP) Meet Rosie, a young bison alone in a Yellowstone winter, and learn how she is affected by the park’s thermal areas. How will these sites influence Rosie’s behavior or sway her migration choices? What advantages do they possess and what threats do they pose? Will these areas determine whether Rosie lives or dies? It’s a question of survival, Yellowstone style! First aired: October 2005
