This morning the issues of bison relocation was the topic on our sister network’s statewide talk show, “Voices of Montana.” State Senator John Brenden of Scobey was the special guest and had sharp criticism for Governor Schweitzer regarding the decision to disregard Senate Bill 212. This bill, passed last year, requires FWP to adopt a management plan before bison are translocated anywhere in the state of Montana.
To hear the interview with Senator Brenden and Senate Bill 212’s sponsor, Rick Ripley, open the show below. Please be patient as it will take a while to load.
KRTV has pictures of the unloading of the bison. CLICK HERE to be taken to their website.
For more information, read “Deal Signed, Yellowstone Bison Going to Fort Peck.” Reaction from the Montana Stockgrowers Association and an explanation from Montana FWP can be found in “Anxiously Waiting for Release of Bison Agreement.” To read the Memorandum of Understanding between FWP and the Fort Peck Tribe, please see “Read Bison Memorandum of Undserstanding.”
