What Would Buffalo Bill Do?

Well, he'd probably shoot the poor things. However, I do think it's a shame that these animals are restricted in what they do naturally. I also wonder how much of a threat brucellosis actually is. Then there is the fact that there are only approximately 2,500 of the beasts today, which doesn't seem to bode too well either. It's claimed that they're healthy (even though almost a 1,000 died of starvation this past winter), but what sort of diversity in the gene pool can be expected when the numbers are so low?
