Controversial bison hunt in Montana killed
Tuesday, January 11, 2005
The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission voted 4-1 on Monday to kill a controversial bison hunt that was opposed by Indian lawmakers.
The Legislature authorized the hunt last year. The season was to begin on Saturday, with 10 permits issued.
Hunters would have been allowed to kill bison that wander out of Yellowstone National Park. The animals in the park are descendants of the last free-roaming herd in the country.
