For at least the next two weeks, Montana Department of Livestock helicopters will cease to hover in the skies around Yellowstone National Park.

Lovell agreed with the arguments of Alliance for Wild Rockies attorneys and issued a restraining order against the use of helicopters in bison hazing operations near the park. The wildlife advocates had argued hazing with helicopters could harm grizzly bears in the area.
