Payne’s Prairie bison “round up” wraps up


A controversial process to round up and control the growth of a Paynes Prarie bison herd is nearing its end nearly a month since it began. Male adults and calves are being castrated to manage the size of the herd and prevent incidents with aggressive bison. According to Gateway Farms Owner David Hajos one bison is still on the loose. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Jessica Alpern says Hajos hopes the last bison will be caught today.
