5 Yellowstone bison transferred to Montana tribes

BFive bull bison from Yellowstone National park have been transferred to an American Indian reservation in northwest Montana under an effort to bolster herds of the animals outside the park.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports the animals were released into corrals on the Fort Peck Reservation on Friday. They’ll be under quarantine for the next year to ensure they are free of the disease brucellosis.
