Public Comment Sought On Bison EA

Bison

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the Montana Department of Livestock are seeking public comment on a draft environmental assessment reviewing the potential for bison to occupy public lands adjacent to Yellowstone National Park year-round. The draft EA evaluates several options, or “alternatives,” allowing for increased tolerance of bison in the Hebgen and Gardiner Basins. It also includes a “No Action” alternative which would result in no changes to current bison tolerance zones defined by the Interagency Bison Management Plan. The environment assessment was prompted in part from the Citizens Working Group on Yellowstone Bison which formally recommended expanded tolerance for bison to the IBMP partners citing a shortage of habitat for bison given current populations within Yellowstone.  The draft EA will be available online for public comment through 5:00 p.m. on August 13th.
