Yellowstone National Park officials have voted to cull between 500-700 bison this winter as part of their annual herd reduction.
The goal of the cull is to reduce the likelihood of disease transmission.
According to Montana Public Radio, a Yellowstone biologist estimated about 4,700 bison are currently living in the park. He also noted that the population has been stable since 2013.
