The Buffalo Ranch was on the east side of MacArthur Blvd, near where it crosses Bison Rd. It was sort of halfway between UCI and Fashion Island.

I worked there on the last weekend before it closed completely. At that point, there were only a couple buffalo left.


C--You actually worked there? That's huge! Did you take photos at all?

What were the American Bison's names at the Buffalo Ranch?
I visited the ranch on a number of occasions and I seem to recall the names being "Billy" and "Becky" who liked to be fed apples and carrots. I probably have photos around some were around the house. I attended a few parties at the ranch and the bison-pie-tossing contest was one of the thematic events...
