Judge Charles Lovell denies injunction on Yellowstone bison slaughter

A Montana federal judge has denied an injunction sought by wildlife advocates to block the slaughter of Yellowstone National Park bison. Thursday’s order (March 14) from U.S. Judge Charles Lovell comes after Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer stepped in last month to halt, for 90 days, the impending shipment of hundreds of the animals to slaughter. Many of the park’s bison are infected with brucellosis, and park officials have yet to say what they will do with more than 200 diseased bison captured this winter. Almost 4,000 of the animals have been killed over the last decade to prevent infections in livestock outside the park.
