A group of 200 bison have wandered out of Yellowstone National Park, the Associated Press reports.

If the bison don't return to the park, they face slaughter by the Montana Department of Livestock. Last month, the state killed 231 bison.

In related news, a federal judge rejected a suit aimed at stopping the use of a helicopter to haze the bison back into the park. U.S. District Judge Charles Lovell granted summary motion to the state and federal defendants.
