All Custer State Park resources, including park staff have been used for firefighting efforts. Now that the fire is under more containment, we've been able to pull some of those resources off the fire line to put toward locating wildlife. The majority of our bison herd has been discovered and we are currently in the process of gathering them up and assessing them. The majority of our pronghorn, elk and deer herds have also been located and visually appear to be doing well. We found half of our burro herd and they were the animals that were most impacted by the fire. They are currently being evaluated by veterinarians for an overall health check. We will continue to look for the remainder of the burro herd, but at this time it is believed they did not survive the extreme fire growth from Tuesday night. Park Staff appreciates your support and your patience at this time as we continue to locate and evaluate our wildlife.
