U.S. District of Columbia Judge Randolph Moss has ordered the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to revisit its decision regarding a denial of evidence submitted by bison advocates in an attempt to have Yellowstone National Park’s bison protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Since 2014, Buffalo Field Campaign and Western Watersheds Project have been fighting to have Yellowstone’s bison declared endangered or threatened.
