Montana FWP to Appeal Bison Court Injunction


On Wednesday, May 9, District Court Judge John McKeon in Blaine County ordered a court injunction that would stop Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks from relocating any quarantined bison within the state of Montana.  The order is to be in effect until a full court case looking into the recent movement of Yellowstone National Park bison to the Fort Peck Reservation can be heard.  Today, it was announced through and email from Governor Brian Schweitzer’s office that Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks would be appealing that court injunction to the Montana Supreme Court.

To get more on the court injunction that was granted last week, please read “Judge to FWP: Don’t Move Quarantined Bison.”
