Argyle - A 450kg 'domesticated' bison that was allowed to roam in her owner's Dallas-area home has moved on to pastures new.

Bullet the bison was transported on Saturday from Karen Schoeve's home in Argyle to her new home, which she will share with two cows, 20km away in Flower Mound.

Schoeve says she was struggling to balance work and looking after Bullet and her two paint ponies, so she sold off the horses and two months ago advertised Bullet for sale on Craigslist for $5 960. She tells The Dallas Morning News she received several offers.

Schoeve describes Bullet as house-trained, although she sometimes tracks mud inside. She says the bison is "good hardy stock, but "not scary" and that she has "a great personality."
