As part of the International Bison Management Plan, hazing operations are being conducted in the West Butte area outside of West Yellowstone, hazing bison back into the park. The operation started on Wednesday and will continue on through the weekend. Livestock department officials say they plan on using around 15 mounted riders and a helicopter to haze the bison back into the park over the next few days. Park Spokesman, Dan Hottle cautions park visitors during this event.

 The operation was moved to this week due to weather conditions in the Park.
