41 bison removed from Grand Canyon NP in first year of controversial reduction program

More than 40 bison have been removed this fall from the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, where the size of the resident herd has been growing uncontrolled.

In total, 36 bison were removed through live capture and transfer and five were removed lethally, reducing the impacts of the herd on the park’s water, vegetation, soils, and culturally significant sites and locations, a park release said Wednesday.
