A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) to take another look at its decision not to include Yellowstone bison under the Endangered Species Act.
The ruling comes after animal-advocacy groups filed a lawsuit alleging that the agency “continues to ignore scientific evidence that there are two separate and genetically distinct herds of bison — the Central Interior Herd and Northern Herd — in Yellowstone National Park,” one of the groups, the Western Watersheds Project, said in a statement.
