Managing disease risk in Alberta's wood bison with special focus on bison to the west of Wood Buffalo National park

Description

This document has been prepared to outline Alberta’s approach for managing the disease risk to both domestic livestock and free-ranging wood bison until such time as a long term solution can be applied to the disease reservoir associated with Wood Buffalo National Park. This approach is focused on the area to the west of the park, as the Wentzel or Wabasca-Mikkwa bison pose a greater threat to transferring diseases to either domestic livestock or the wild Hay-Zama bison herd than do the Ronald Lake bison herd to the south of the park.
