Let the Bison Hazing Commence


WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. –  State and Federal Wildlife managers push bison back into the park each spring to make way for grazing cattle. On Tuesday, the Montana Department of Livestock worked just outside of West Yellowstone, on the south side of the Madison arm of Hebgen Lake.

According to the Department of Livestock, this season about 450 livestock will need to be moved. We watched as a group of around 100 bison moved slow and steady along a back road near the south fork of the Madison river.

Groups like Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks, and the Montana Department of Livestock were all on horseback moving the bison, with one common goal. “To move bison back into Yellowstone,” said Rob Tierney.
