Sheridan, WY. – Sheridan city officials are looking to sell five bison from a herd of seven from it’s city park, Kendrick park. The number of bison has grown too large for the park, which has limited space and food opportunities. Two elk owned by the state and 7 bison owned by the city of Sheridan currently reside on the property. For more than a year the city has been reviewing the park, and has determined that selling down the herd would be the best way to provide ideal living conditions for animals living in the park. Sheridan Public Works Director Nic Batseson says the city is taking proposals for purchase of the bison, and that the submitted proposals would be reviewed by a selection committee. City operations superintendent Mathers Heuck said one of the female bison is expected to give birth in the coming weeks, adding another member to the herd. Anyone may submit a sealed purchase proposal to the city of Sheridan until 10 a.m. on June 22.
