Bison

Twenty-seven wild American bison were captured Thursday near West Yellowstone.  The operation was led by the Montana Department of Livestock and took place at the department’s Duck Creek bison trap, located on private land adjacent to the western edge of Yellowstone National Park.  A news release from the environmental group Buffalo Field Campaign says 12 newborn calves, 12 mothers, and three two-year-olds were relocated in the operation.  Agencies participating in the effort included the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, the National Park Service, the US Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office.  The trapped bison were loaded onto livestock trailers, transported into Yellowstone National Park, and released at Fountain Flats inside the park.
