Bison Plan Published Online

March 27, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Paradise Valley Comments Off

An agreement between Montana’s wildlife agency and a northeastern Montana Indian reservation that allowed for the recent translocation and long-term care of more than 60 disease-free bison is now available online.  The state’s Fish Wildlife and Parks Deaprtment says a total of 63 bison arrived last week from the quarantine facility near Gardiner. The bison are part of a study that began in 2004 aimed at creating a group of bison free of the bacteria that causes brucellosis, a disease that results in miscarriages in some pregnant animals, including domestic cattle, and bison and elk. The Memorandum of Understanding between Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and the Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Reservation, which was signed March 16, includes commitments to properly contain bison, immediately respond to any escapes of bison,  keep liability insurance to cover any damage claims, provide Montana with disease-free bison for potential future conservation efforts, and continue disease testing for five years.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
