National Park Service calls for volunteers to kill bison at Grand Canyon | Fox News

The National Park Service (NPS) is looking for volunteers to assist in killing hundreds of bison on the North Rim of Arizona’s Grand Canyon National Park.

“Shooting animals accustomed to a non-threatening human presence — the park attracts nearly 6 million visitors a year — is a betrayal,” the Humane Society of the U.S. wrote in a 2017 blog post. “The charges against the bison are trumped-up and best characterized as fake ecological news.”

“I’m very nervous about there being a perpetual dependency on this use of people having to go into the park and shoot,” the Sierra Club’s Alicyn Gitlin told the Associated Press.
