The Grand Canyon National Park has unveiled a program to thin the bison herd that roam in the area. Bison have been destroying water sources, vegetation, and soil. The National park has looked into using Sharpshooters to help prevent the herd from damaging more land. Park officials have said that 80 to 200 bison are acceptable for sustainability but the number now which is 400- 600 bison is not. There has been state legislation which would allow the hunter to take the meat so the animal does not go to waste.
