Spared slaughter, some bison migrate into Montana

By Matthew Brown
Corwin Springs, Montana (AP)


For the first time since the 1800s, a small group of wild bison were herded last week through fresh-fallen snow to reach their historical grazing grounds north of Yellowstone National Park.

As pronghorn antelope and mule deer scattered to avoid the procession, park employees and state livestock agents on horseback pushed the 25 bison about ten miles down the Yellowstone River valley. It took about three hours to reach an open meadow in the Gallatin National Forest, where the animals will be allowed to remain until spring.

I'm praying that this small herd will be successful in their new home. Back in the 1970s we re-introduced bison back into the Yukon and the Aishihik herd is doing fantastic - no disease and their numbers are steadily growing. The herd actually split itself about 1998 and now cover the south and north ends of their area.
