I didn't know that the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park has bison. Apparently, there's a population of about 400-600 bison at the North Rim.
According to KTNV-13 Action News:
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The National Park Service has announced plans to reduce the number of bison found near the Grand Canyon's North Rim through lethal and nonlethal means.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports the National Park Service released a draft plan Tuesday which outlines the nonlethal capture and removal of bison as well as lethal culling by trained volunteers. The goal is to bring Grand Canyon bison numbers from 400 to 600 to fewer than 200 over the few years.
