"More Than 550 Yellowstone Bison Culled"

"More than 550 bison have been killed through hunting and ship-to-slaughter so far this winter and bison managers seem assured to reach the cull goal for the year.

Yellowstone National Park biologist Rick Wallen said Friday afternoon that 328 bison have been shipped to slaughter so far. According to a report from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, hunters have killed another 234, bringing the overall total near the lower end of bison managers’ removal target of between 600 and 900 animals.

“This is the kind of year where we can actually make some progress at the objectives that were set forth,” Wallen said."
