I drive that stretch of road every day and didn't realize the animals out there were buffalo. After a quick glance, I just assumed they were cows in the field. It wasn't until yesterday when a friend reached out to tell me about them that I realized what they were.

The next question that entered my head was, why are there buffalo out there? I honestly can't answer why with any certainty, but I can say what I've heard through the grapevine and rumor mill. From what I heard, someone had intentions of purchasing or did purchase the old Grand Blanc Inn building in hopes to have a restaurant with wild game on the menu. I also heard that the idea was shot down by the township.

Again, I have no idea how much, if any of that is true. It would be cool to have a restaurant like that though. Who is in the know and actually knows what is going on? I would really like to know the details.
