Yellowstone National Park might have to kill about 1,000 bison this winter to restrict the animals' migration into Montana.
Park officials are talking with the federal government and American Indian tribes to deal with the growing numbers of bison venturing outside the protected borders of the park.
The crux of the problem lies with the possible transmission of brucellosis from bison to cattle; the disease can cause cattle to accidentally lose their calves. (Video via Brand USA)
