Bison Stay Put

Stephens Creek

The bison being held at Stephens Creek north of Yellowstone National Park are going nowhere soon.  Even though a federal judge in Montana has denied a request from environmentalists to halt the shipment of bison to slaughter from the holding facility, Park Spokesman Al Nash says the plaintiffs in that case have filed an appeal to the decision which is still pending; and Montana’s governor has issued an executive order banning the shipping of bison through the state for slaughter. Consequently, Nash says for now the bison will stay put. The bison have been removed from free ranging outside the park because biologists fear as they commingle with cattle and transmit brucellosis to cows which can cause cows to miscarry their young. Testing has shown that about a third of the animals being held at the facility are infected.

  • 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 […]
