In Re: AWI, The HSUS, et al. (Yellowstone bison slaughter)
With considerable scientific evidence of at least two genetically distinct bison populations inhabiting Yellowstone National Park, The HSUS and other petitioners filed a rulemaking petition requesting that the National Park Service halt the current unprecedented slaughter of bison, which ignores the damage being done to the genetic diversity necessary for the continued survival of the populations of bison found in the park.
