Video: Big Day for Bison

Printer-friendly version
On March 19, 2012, about 60 genetically pure bison were relocated from a quarantine facility outside Yellowstone National Park to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in eastern Montana. The long-awaited move marks the historic homecoming of wild bison to an important part of their historic range on the Great Plains.

Defenders' Rocky Mountain Representative, Jonathan Proctor, reflects on this fantastic success story in this video full of photos and video footage from the big day.
