To the Editor,

There has never been evidence of a documented transmission of brucellosis from bison to cattle, so not allowing bison to roam out of Yellowstone Park is a government scheme that is backed up by a misrepresentation of the facts.

Further, slaughtering the bison that leave the park is a way for our government officials to cater to special interests and private ranching operations.

There is no scientific evidence of harm from bison to the landscape or to other livestock. A free roaming herd of bison should be restored in Montana—until we can be provided with a truthful, legitimate reason for otherwise.
