THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 2003 Federal and state authorities in North Dakota are looking into reports that a herd on the Fort Berthold Reservation is being mishandled. A former tribal judge said he became concerned when he visited the herd and said they were starving. But the project manager and Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation Chairman Tex Hall say the animals are not being harmed. Hall acknowledged that some bison died over the winter, which is not out of the ordinary. The herd comes from the Theodore Roosevelt National Park when the park's herd exceeds the target level.
