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.
