    Yellowstone Bison

    Has anyone else heard about this? What do you think? So instead of making money for the state hunting bison, to cut the population they are capturing them and taking them to an Indian tribe so they can slaughter them and bring them to market. Does this make sense to anyone? We are capturing them at our tax payers expense!

    First I've heard of it and the plan makes no sense.

    I've heard of similar things in the past, but the tribes were getting the buffalo for ceremonial purposes. After much public debate, the deal never went through due to the risk of spreading brucellosis to domestic cattle herds.

    Idiots! Maybe they can capture some of the wolf there too and send them to the reservations for slaughter.

    Kinda like the giraffe in the zoo, instead of selling him or nuetering him they killed him on site.
