Such a program, in the opin- m of park officials, would wipe it the Yellowstone bison. For more than 10 years, not nc case of brucellosis has been elected in the cattle herds of rcas of Wyoming, Montana and daho bordering the park, these fficials say. Moreover, Mary loagher, a research biologist, ould find no data to support lie ranchers' contention that lie disease, which can te prcad among animals by tlir- ct contact, had ever been ransmitted from Yellowstone jison to livestock. The controversy finds the In- erior Department in attitudes if hostile confrontation.

They say they lost mil- lions of dollars in the slaughter of diseased cattle during an out- areak of brucellosis in the 1050's. Why, they ask, shouldn't the National Park Services be compelled to clean up a source of infection? "Herds were sacrificed all over the said Mons Teigen, executive secretary of the Montana Stock Growers As- sociation. "So it does not seem reasonable to permit a reser- voir of brucellosis in this area." Miss Meagher, who has been studying the Yellowstone bison for years insists that bison rare- ly leave Ihe park. They have strong affinities for certain park areas, she explained in an in- terview. Routine monitoring of park joundaries would "reduce to zero the remote possibility lhat park bison could serve BS :he source for cattle she said. But the cattlemen would not listen. "It was like talking to brick Miss Meagher complained. Their proposed brucellosis control program in the park would "destroy the Yellowstone IMSOII as a free-ranging wild population with unique esthetic and scientific she said. Miss Meagher said there was no evidence that brucellosis had any ill effects on the Yellow- stone bison, which are increas- ing slowly. Extermination of the Yellowstone herds would not eradicate brucellosis, she said, because the organism had other carriers, inch.'ding rod- ents, biting flic and licks. Her skepticism about the transmission of brucellosis from bison to cattle was challenged by Dr. Gerald D. Ilobsrtson, transmit brucellosis lo he said. However, L.
