FLATHEAD RESERVATION — People may have heard about or seen three bison on Ravalli Hill near the highway. Two were shot near Old Freight Road and Highway 93. Those were escaped “livestock” bison from a private herd southeast of St. Ignatius. They are not bison range bison. There are no holes in the Bison Range fence; the exterior boundary fence has been checked multiple times this week and is checked often.
