One of the two men who chained themselves to a cement barrel outside of the Stephens Creek bison capture facility in Yellowstone National Park was sentenced in Yellowstone Federal Court on Wednesday.

According to a media release from the Buffalo Field Campaign, the man who goes by “Wolf” was sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation and $1,000 in fines, and he is banned from YNP for three years.

The Buffalo Field Campaign said Wolf is the fifth person to be arrested in less than a month for trying to stop YNP from shipping bison to slaughter.
