VALENTINE — The Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge has decided to postpone the bison roundup that was to start Monday.
Steven Hicks, project leader, said, “Our herd has experienced some mortality recently due to disease. Consequently, we do not want to stress our bison at this time. Typically wildlife diseases of this type end with the first hard frost, which is expected shortly.”
