Hunting offers best solution for North Rim bison problems
(Havasu News, 4/9)

“Bison on the Grand Canyon’s North Rim are a relatively recent arrival, a transplant to a fringe of its natural range. To visitors, they are an attraction. To National Park Service managers, they are a growing nuisance. […] The smart way to go is the plan favored by the Arizona Game and Fish Department: Hunt them until the herd is to a size sustainable outside of the park’s boundaries. […] Bills sponsored by Arizona’s two senators and by U.S. Rep Paul Gosar would allow hunting in the remote regions of Grand Canyon National Park. If that plan is approved, hunting would thin the herd, provide protection for Park Service habitat, provide food and also bolster Arizona’s economy.”
