my question:are buffalo extinct?

No, I have passed buffalo on small farms driving through the country area in Florida. They didn't have herds of them, but there would be one or two. Many of them are different from the orginal ones. However, they were massive with huge horns and a completely different profile that they were hard to mistake, and awesome to spot!

The original wild buffalo almost went extinct. If it was not for a rancher named James Phillip they probably would of all been gone by the early 1900's. He managed to purchase and protect a small number of buffalo just as they became wiped out everywhere else. Eventually they became protected under the United States Government and were released in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, where they eventually breed their numbers back up. What this one rancher did was pretty cool because it was not something people normally did in those days, extinction was not a hot topic.

No, buffalo are not extinct.

Buffalo were hunted down to the point where there were concerns the animal might become extinct, but since then the animal has thrived due to restrictions on hunting and protecting their natural habitats.

There was a time when they were hunted to near extinction, but luckily laws were put into place to protect them before they were completely wiped out. In some places buffalo can now roam freely, and in others they are farmed like other cattle.

The North American Bison (Buffalo of Kevin Costner fame) are alive, well and even farmed.
