Buffalo hunters killed three bull bison, but a soon-to-be-built fence sponsored by an animal-protection group may keep other buffalo safely inside Yellowstone National Park. The three bison were shot by hunters with special licenses just outside the park. The shaggy beasts wandered out of the park over the weekend, necessitating Montana’s first buffalo hunt in more than 25 years, authorities said in Gardiner, Mont. Last year, 88 bison that had wandered outside the park were shot and killed by state wildlife officials.
