Ho-Chunk Nation sells rest of bison herd over high costs

The Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin is selling the rest of its bison herd.

The tribe at one point had 300 bison. But it costs too much to maintain the animals, according to Henning Garvin of the heritage preservation department.

The tribe started the herd to provide meat for people suffering from heart disease, diabetes, and other effects of obesity, WTAQ reported.

The tribe has been a member of the Inter Tribal Bison Cooperative.
