The death toll of bison in Yellowstone National Park will hit nearly 300, thanks to a week of slaughter by Montana livestock officials.

Last week, 231 bison were killed, The Billings Gazette reports. Some 47 are about to be slaughtered.

The animals, descendants of the last free-roaming herd in the country, are killed under the guises of preventing the transmission of a deadly disease to cattle.
