Study: Bison Birth Control Working on Catalina Island

…a study just published in the Journala of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine reveals that artificial contraception can work to keep American bison from reproducing, apparently with no ill effects on the bison.  Most biologists working on bison want the critters to be fruitful and multiply as much as they can healthily: the species’ numbers are down by about 99.5% from their historic levels, estimated to be somewhere around 60 million animals in 1492.
