Yellowstone slaughters wild bison to shrink herds

As part of a population control program, Yellowstone National Park has captured nearly 550 wild bison, sending most to slaughter. The annual culling is carried out under a legal agreement aimed at preventing the spread of an animal disease to cattle. In addition to this, about 270 bison have been killed by Native American tribal hunters.

Certain human populations could use a culling. I could think of one or two regions that are cesspools of diseases.

I sincerely hope that culled bison meat is shared with tribes that live in other areas of the country that have no ability to hunt them.

Why don't they just allow more hunting
