Films: The White Buffalo (1977)
Height/Weight: Twice that of an average buffalo.
Summary: It's not quite Moby Dick on land, but it's got Charles Bronson and perhaps the only monster buffalo around. Certainly a unique gem, right here.
History: Somewhere in the American Northwest, there is no creature more revered and feared than the white buffalo. This towering beast is known for charging through just about everything, regardless as to who or what might get killed. One man is after it for the visions it induces in him, while a Native American, Crazy Horse, if after it for killing his daughter.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After a fierce confrontation by both hunters, the white buffalo is brutally stabbed several times over in the back by Crazy Horse before being shot in the face while charging, causing to lose its balance and fall over for everyone to shoot and stab it more. Deader than dead, this one.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-Very well-done special effects work make this ungulate stand out as a particularly ferocious animal. It almost actually looks like a giant angry horned animal is charging right at you.
Trivia: -The American bison came very close to extinction due to overhunting, but a man by the name of James "Scotty" Phillip prevented that by running a special pasture for them. Some say that at his funeral, the bison came to his grave to honor him.
-This was the final western that Charles Bronson stared in.
