Bison from Yellowstone gives birth at Fort Peck Reservation

A bison was born on the Fort Peck Reservation in Monday on Sunday.

The bison was born from a cow that was transferred to the reservation from Yellowstone National Park. The tribe expects more newborns in the coming weeks.

"I wouldn't be surprised if we have four or five more within the next week or two. They're ready," Robbie Magnan, the tribal fish and game director, told The Great Falls Tribune.

The tribe accepted more than 60 bison from Yellowstone. Some are to be transferred to the Fort Belknap Indian Community but the move has been put on hold by a state judge.
