Nine environmental and American Indian groups have sued two federal agencies to stop the killing of bison that migrate out of Yellowstone National Park, according to the Associated Press. During the last decade, more than 3,300 bison have been killed to prevent the spread of brucellosis to area cattle. "It's crazy for me to think that in a state like Montana, where we are rich in wildlife and wildlands, that we don't have room for bison," said Tom Woodbury with the Western Watersheds Project. Bison once roamed North America by the millions before being largely wiped out in the late 1800s.
