Bison Diet
  Bison are herbivores and eat simple foods. The bison's main
 foodstuff is grass, though they will eat any available low-lying shrubbery as well as sedges. In the winter, bison forage for grass under the snow. If there is little grass available, they will eat the twigs of shrubs. Bison are notably better browsers than cattle, since cattle are more obligate grazers, even though wood bison have also been described as "obligate grazers". Wisent tend to browse on shrubs and low-hanging trees more often than do their cousins, the American bison. American bison prefer grass to shrubbery and trees.
 
  Bison Predators  
  Due to their size, bison have few predators. Five notable
exceptions are the grey wolf, human, brown bear, coyote,
and grizzly bear. The grey wolf generally takes down a bison
 while in a pack, but there have been cases of a single wolf
killing bison. Brown bear also prey on bison calves, often by
driving off the pack and consuming the wolves' kill.
