SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — The north-central Wyoming town of Sheridan has found a buyer for six of its bison, which are being sold because the herd has grown too large.

Hunting outfitter and local rancher Brant Hilman was the lone bidder for the bison that have been kept in the pasture above Kendrick Park. The city has three bison left in its herd.

Hilman will pay total of $4,250 for the bison. He currently owns about 50 head of bison, most of which are raised for meat.

Hilman says he’ll probably keep some of the animals he bought from the city and send others to market.
