Bison Burgers, for Humanity's Sake  

Bison Burgers, for Humanity's Sake: "Bison Burgers, for Humanity's Sake

Ted Turner at Ted's Montana Grill in Peachtree City, Ga. He is trying to make bison burgers as popular as Big Macs.

THREE years ago, Ted Turner's effort to restore the country's bison herds was such a success that it created a problem: a glut of bison meat. So Mr. Turner has started a restaurant chain, Ted's Montana Grill, where he is turning bison into burgers and, in the process, hoping to build what he calls 'another great fortune.''
With little fanfare, Mr. Turner opened the first of the restaurants in 2002 and now has 11 of them in the South and West, five in this city alone."

Whatever else he might be, Ted Turner is very far from stupid. This move is not only good for his bankroll, but good for the public, as well. It's been known for a long time that bison meat (buffalo) is easier on the human body than the equivalent beef.
