First bison released into new range area at Badlands NP

Bison at Badlands National Park in South Dakota have gained 22,000 more acres to roam, and visitors could have a better chance of seeing the iconic animals that are heading back onto ground their kind haven't roved since the 1870s.


During a ceremony held Friday during the season's first snowfall, four bison bulls bolted from the back of a trailer and headed onto the new range made possible through private fund-raising that raised nearly $750,000 to pay for 43 miles of fence in the north end of the national park.
