Three Bison Poached in Yellowstone



(WEST YELLOWSTONE, MT) – Yellowstone National Park administrators are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of someone who poached three bison last week. Investigators believe someone shot the animals along a road in the Blacktail Plateau area sometime between March 13 and 15. Hunting inside the park is illegal, though some controlled hunts are offered when bison wander into areas north of the park in Montana. Those with information can call detectives at 307-344-2132.
