150 Yellowstone buffalo risk slaughter; Possum on diet to cure cross-eyes

150 Yellowstone bison captured likely to be slaughtered

The group will be tested for brucellosis, which cattle can catch from elk or maybe bison, and those that test positive will be killed. About half usually test positive because the test has a high false positive rate. But bison get slaughtered for it. The group of 300 probably includes the ones just released after a public outcry. How about that deal to let cattle on nearby Church land? Not working out so well–except for the church, which got a boatload of taxpayer money. Wildlife News
