More disagreements between tribe and feds stalls transfer of excess Yellowstone NP bison

CHICO HOT SPRINGS — The plan to relocate disease-free Yellowstone bison to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation is at yet another impasse as the tribe and federal agriculture officials can’t come to an agreement that would allow the animals to go to the reservation.

At a meeting of the agencies involved in the Interagency Bison Management Plan, an Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official said there are five bull bison that have graduated two sets of brucellosis testing and could go to the reservation but would need a final phase of testing in captivity before they could be released.
