NPS & Montana Looking at New Bison Plan

Posted: Updated:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -

Yellowstone National Park and the state of Montana want to come up with a new plan to manage bison.

The two will prepare a join environmental impact statement on how to handle wild Yellowstone bison and brucellosis.

It's been 13 years since the National Park Service and the state agreed how to manage the bison -- and both know times have changed.

Once they come up with a plan, organizations, agencies and the public will be able to comment and suggest issues or alternatives.

Both want to protect the population of Yellowstone bison while continuing to lower the risk of passing on brucellosis to cattle, protect property from damage and human safety.
