Yellowstone Bison in Winter.

Environmental Assessment for the Use of Quarantine to Identify Brucellosis-free Yellowstone Bison for Relocation Elsewhere

The National Park Service has developed an environmental assessment to evaluate the potential impacts of implementing a quarantine program for Yellowstone bison at one or more new quarantine facilities, which could be located within Yellowstone National Park, on tribal lands, or elsewhere. The purpose of quarantine would be to establish or augment tribal and public populations of plains bison to assist in the conservation of the species as wildlife, support the culture and nutrition of Native Americans, and reduce the number of Yellowstone bison sent to processing facilities.
