More than a hundred bison expected to be hazed back toward Yellowstone National Park after wandering onto private property west of the park.
State of Montana Veterinarian, Marty Zaluski tells our news team that the bison have moved onto a section of land with a "no tolerance for bison."
After hazing them back onto nearby land, the bison continue to move back onto private property where cattle are being raised.
The department of livestock, working with other members of the Interagency Bison Management Plan, decided the best course of action would be to move the bison back toward the park.
"The decision was to try to remove the bison that are in a non-tolerance area, and move them inside the perimeter of Yellowstone National Park. Because of the continued conflict or continued migration into non-tolerance areas," says Zaluski.
Zaluski adds the state plans on moving the bison later this week.
