Ten tribal employees lose jobs on bison range

Missoula, Montana (AP) October 2010

Officials say 10 Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribal employees have lost their jobs at the National Bison Range after a federal judge rescinded a funding agreement over the range’s management.

That could create a problem for next week’s annual bison roundup at the range near Moiese. Some 300 bison are supposed to be herded for health checks.

KECI reports the tribes and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are trying to work out a new agreement.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in Washington, D.C., ruled earlier this week the 2008 funding agreement violated federal law. She ruled the federal agency did not assess the possible environmental impacts of the agreement with the tribes over management of the range.
