Hunters, slaughterhouses and agencies using Yellowstone National Park bison for research combined to cut the park’s bison herd by 600 this year.

This winter, tribal and Montana-licensed hunters combined to kill 263 bison that crossed the west and north boundaries of the park, according to a Yellowstone press release last week. Another 258 bison were rounded up and given to Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes or the InterTribal Buffalo Council for slaughter. Finally, 60 bison were transferred live by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a research project.
