Bison

File - In this Oct. 26, 2019, file photo, riders herd bison during the annual bison roundup on Antelope Island in Utah. Evidence is mounting that wild North American bison are gradually shedding their genetic diversity across many of the isolated herds overseen by the U.S. government, weakening future resilience against disease and climate events in the shadow of human encroachment. Advances in genetics are bringing the concern in to sharper focus. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer, File)

Montana's Democratic governor and the Republican secretary of state who wants his job are locked in a constitutional dispute over a measure that could affect whether more bison could be moved to the reserve. Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a bill that would have changed the definition of a wild bison. Opponents say the bill targets the conservation group trying to create a large bison reserve. Secretary of State Corey Stapleton says the bill should become law because the governor's veto letter missed a deadline to be sent to his office. (AP Photo/Matt Brown, File)

This 2017 photo provided by the Museum of Northern Arizona shows an unidentified man wearing a headpiece fashioned out of an animal hide at the Navajo Festival of Arts and Culture in Flagstaff, Ariz. The hide did not come from a state wildlife repository, but the photo shows how Native Americans use animal parts for religious and cultural purposes. Arizona wildlife officials are on the lookout for bear, bison, badger and other carcasses for Native Americans' religious and cultural use under a unique new program that allows tribes to make requests for various animal parts.
