    It would be wonderful if some of the bison would be able to feed the homeless. Many restaurants here donate their end-of-day bread and other foods to our homeless shelters (Columbus, Ohio). But I am also wondering if letting bison roam into other unused government lands would be a good idea, there to be controlled and somewhere they can be seen and visited as they do in South and North Dakota. These animals are native to North America, and should be protected and preserved and as they breed that gives opportunities for meat that is needed; it also creates jobs for Americans that are out of work and love doing animal care and outdoor work.

    Great! A Bison cull. Just think how many homeless could be fed especially on the heels of the successful deer cull recently.

    I think it's fantastic that the Bison population has grown to the point where it's becoming overpopulated, 100 years ago we almost lost them to extinction. I would love to see some of these Bison get transplanted to some of their old natural habitats. Why not send 100 to Utah, I'm sure we have some room for them.
