Angus M. Thuermer Jr. discusses his recent article about the annual Yellowstone bison slaughter with Cassandra Lee of KHOL 89.1 in Jackson. Thuermer was among reporters who were recently allowed to watch crews process wild bison for slaughter. The annual cull, along with a hunt just outside the park, seeks to kill up to 900 of the park’s 4,900 bison this winter in a controversial program some hope to reform.
