45,000 people sign up for a chance to kill 12 bison in the Grand Canyon


The parks service opened up the hunting application because it is concerned with the growth of a bison heard in the North Rim area of the Grand Canyon, according to a news release.

The herd may impact water, vegetation, soils and archaeological sites in the park and “reducing the herd size will protect the park ecosystem, resources and values,” the park service said.

Out of the 45,000 people interested in the opportunity, 25 applicants will be selected from the pool and then out of those, 12 volunteers will be chosen by a random lottery system on May 17.
