This place actually had a herd of buffalo that was used to repopulate the American West (if you've ever been to Yellowstone, you've seen the NH herd's descendants!) after the bison out west were wiped out. So without a private hunting preserve, we wouldn't have any wild buffalo - always trade-offs...

Corbin Park also had wild hogs that were imported from Europe for hunting. They escaped the fence after a storm way back, and have spread in the wild. That would be a long way to go though to make it up to Center Harbor!
Interesting I had no idea some had gotten loose.
