Wild Bi­son

Smithsonian Magazine - - Discussion -

“Po­lit­i­cal An­i­mal” (Novem­ber 2018) ig­nores the hard­ships of trans­fer­ring bi­son to the Tribes. The Tribes have con­structed a quar­an­tine fa­cil­ity to re­turn bru­cel­losis-neg­a­tive buf­falo to tribal lands and re­store their his­tor­i­cal con­nec­tions with Amer­i­can In­di­ans. But the state of Mon­tana, the An­i­mal and Plant Health In­spec­tion Ser­vice and the live­stock in­dus­try have ob­structed this ef­fort. The gov­ern­ment took buf­falo from Amer­i­can In­di­ans and now it re­fuses to give them back.
