More than 200 bison from Yellowstone National Park have been rounded up this week, with most headed to the slaughterhouse.

Federal and state officials in Montana are looking at rounding up an additional 100, a park official told The Billings Gazette. The activity marks the first time since the winter of 1996-1997 that so many animals have been rounded up.

The state of Montana is allowed to slaughter bison that wander out of the park. The cattle industry fears the herd will transmit brucellosis, a deadly disease, to cows.
