WATFORD CITY -- A bison roundup in Theodore Roosevelt National Park's North Unit went off without a hitch Tuesday and two Native American tribes will soon receive the animals.


This year's roundup aims to cull about 225 of the North Unit's 325 bison, a process that hasn't been conducted since 2004.

With a crew of about 40 people and a contracted Wyoming helicopter crew, about 84 of the animals were worked at the North Unit handling facility Tuesday.
