LA Times Today: Plan to import bison to Catalina Island generates controversy

Watch L.A. Times Today at 7 p.m. on Spectrum News 1 on Channel 1 or live stream on the Spectrum News App. Palos Verdes Peninsula and Orange County viewers can watch on Cox Systems on channel 99.

In 1924 a movie crew left 14 bison on Catalina Island. Since then, the herd has grown and the island’s tight knit community has embraced them.

You can find bison coffee mugs and calendars just about anywhere in town.

L.A. Times Louis Sahagun writes there’s a push to increase the bison population, but not everyone is welcoming the news.
