Fund for Animals, Inc. v. Espy, 814 F. Supp. 142 (D.D.C. 1993)

Case Summary:

On behalf of the Fund for Animals we brought a successful challenge in connection with federal and state efforts to harm wild bison, on the unsubstantiated and speculative basis that they may infect cattle with brucellosis. In this case we halted an effort by the USDA to lure bison out of Yellowstone where they could be captured, confined, experimented on, and killed as part of the burcellosis project.

Plaintiffs: The Fund for Animals, and individuals.

Court: United States District Court for the District of Columbia
