S01 Extras 06: Breaking News on the National Bison Range
Today, the Missoulian is reporting that Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke is planning to "change course" on the proposed transfer of the National Bison Range to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes -- meaning his agency is not going to support the proposed transfer. We reported on this story in episode five of season one. Check out this page to see pictures and videos of the National Bison Range, to learn more about the CSKT, and to find out about the lawsuit to stop the proposed transfer. Zinke is a Montanan who formerly served as the state's sole representative in the U.S. House (yep, Montana only gets one).
