Monday’s Finish the Story: The Protectors


2015-04-20-bw-beachamThey followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods. They would do this every year at this time, right after hibernation when the predators were most active. It was the glue that bound this family together. You can call it a tradition or a common goal since they all wanted to protect the buffaloes.

Sammy, the eldest son along with his brother, Josh, and sister, Jackie, would drive out to the spot where the herd would gather. Then Samuel along with his wife, Amy, would go to the Buffaloes’ safe zone, the prairie on the other end of the woods to wait for their children and guide them along the way. Together, the family would herd the buffaloes toward the woods and they would follow closely behind.

It often took days, sometimes weeks to successfully migrate the buffaloes but what would be waiting for them on the other side was the satisfaction that the buffaloes will be safe for another year.
