Yellowstone bison could go to Turner's Mont. ranch

BILLINGS, Mont. — Dozens of wild bison from Yellowstone National Park would be relocated to a Montana ranch owned by billionaire Ted Turner, under a recommendation made by state and federal officials Tuesday.
The animals were spared from a slaughter program intended to protect Montana's cattle industry from a disease carried by many bison. The plan was to use those animals — considered disease-free — to repopulate public and tribal lands across the West with free-roaming bison.
But after other offers to take the animals fell through or were judged insufficient, state and federal officials said Tuesday that Turner's private ranch was the best option.
A smaller group of eight to 14 bison would go to Guernsey State Park in Wyoming.
Turner already owns about 50,000 bison, most of them domesticated, and his restaurant chain Ted's Montana Grill serves buffalo burgers.....

I pursued your hyperlink and read a great deal of the posts. I'm impressed; I haven't seen that high quality of coordinated intelligence in a long time. I might not agree with all of their conclusions, but I certainly respect the seemingly honest statements.

I'm going to guess that Ted Turner is a billionaire because he did deals that made him money.
