Over 30 Bison Relocated To Great Plains From Yellowstone


According to Tamarra Kemsley of Nature World News, more than 30 bison were transported to the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation on Thursday.

The animals, which were originally from Yellowstone National Park, were transported (along with about 30 others) to Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana last year as part of plans to relocate them to the Great Plains.

Those plans had to be put on hold, however, after a lawsuit was filed in an attempt to block any further relocation of the creatures within the state of Montana, Kemsley added. An injunction prohibiting their transportation was lifted in June, however, allowing efforts to relocate the bison to Fort Peck to resume.
