Bison Protesters Plead Guilty In Yellowstone, Banned From Park

Three bison slaughter protesters who were arrested here earlier this month will be banned from Yellowstone National Park for five years after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges Monday. Hannah Ponder, Cody Cyson and Thomas Brown appeared in U.S. District Court at Mammoth Hot Springs after nearly a week in jail following their arrest near the park’s Stephens Creek Capture Facility, where bison are trapped and readied for slaughter. The area around the facility is closed to the public.
