The present recovery of the bison is owed to ranchers who collected bison scattered across the prairies for the purpose of establishing founding stocks (Allen 1877; Garretson 1934; Rorabacher 1970; Dary 1974; Ogilvie 1979). By 1889 there were an estimated 200 bison in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 550 bison in Wood Buffalo National Park (Alberta and Northwest Territories… CONTINUE READING
