Fort Belknap tribes need help shipping bison meat

The tribes on the Fort Belknap Reservation in Montana need help shipping bison meat to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The tribes plan to slaughter 10 bison but need a way to ship the 5,000 pounds of meat. Officials are looking for a refrigerated truck headed to Utah, Colorado or Texas. The animals won't be slaughtered until a way to deliver them is found.

Separately, the tribes are collecting clothing, bedding, money, school supplies and books to send to Katrina victims.
