Glasgow Sees First Votes for Bison Translocation


Right around 150 people joined together Monday night in the Glasgow Civic Center as the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks held their third and final public meeting on the translocation of Yellowstone National Park Bison to two state-owned wildlife management areas and the Fort Peck and Fort Belknap Reservations. 

Public comment was being taken on an environmental assessment that came out from the FWP just over a month ago.  For more details, please read “Montana’s Free-Roaming Bison Herd Needs Pasture.”  Information can also be found within that story on how to get your comments in before the October 19 deadline. 

Comments in Glasgow were varied from concerns of disease, containment, the importance of bison to the tribes and worries about what Fish, Wildlife and Parks has in store for its BIG PICTURE when it comes to bison.
