More bison issues at troubled Dakotas ranch
FORT YATES (AP) -- A North Dakota sheriff has impounded 37 bison from a troubled ranch on the North Dakota-South Dakota border and says he'll sell them unless the Florida real estate tycoon who owns them pays three ranchers for feeding the animals all winter.
Sheriff Frank Landeis has given Maurice Wilder until Friday to pay $45,000, or the bison will be auctioned. Wilder did not respond to an Associated Press request for comment Wednesday.
