Yellowstone Park bison to be held and released in spring

[Wednesday, March 19, 2008] The Stephens Creek bison holding facility is now being used to hold bison attempting to migrate out of the park until spring. The bison will be tested for brucellosis, those that test positive will be sent to slaughter; those that test negative will be released back into the park when forage becomes available in spring. Until recently all bison held at the Stephens Creek facility were sent to slaughter. The holding pens can accommodate 200-400 bison.
