More than 400 bison have been slaughtered outside the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park in Montana as they left the protected area in their customary winter search for food at lower altitudes.
According to the Buffalo Field Campaign, an advocacy group formed to stop the culling of the herd in the name of livestock owners’ interests, 410 bison have been trapped and removed for slaughter over the past several weeks.
The effort has been under way since mid-January, according to Boulder Weekly; it’s part of the Interagency Bison Management Plan, which will remove between 800 and 900 animals this year. Hunting will eliminate about 350 of them, the newspaper said, and from 500 to 600 will be captured and then slaughtered.

Later in the interview, I asked Miller to put those 100,000 arrests in Baltimore into context. Were they the same as Ferguson’s? No. “Urinating on the sidewalk, urinating in public, open container,” she said as she decried the “pettiness…of the initial stop” of Gray. Then Miller gave context to why Gray might have run in the first place.
What is he doing? He’s running from the police. Why? Because he knows they’re going to lock him up. That’s why. They look at him. Make eye contact. “Oh, there’s Freddie.” You know, there was a time in policing that they would go up to Freddie and say, “Hey, Freddie! Get off the corner.” They wouldn’t chase him down and lock him up.
