Abstract: The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) lists the wood bison (Bison bison athabascae) as Threatened (a species likely to become endangered if limiting factors are not reversed).

One of the greatest obstacles to the recovery of wood bison is the presence of introduced cattle diseases, specifically bovine tuberculosis and brucellosis, in some northern herds. Approximately 2,500 bison remain in infected herds, while the number of bison in noninfected free-ranging herds has increased to 4,700 (2,700 wood bison and 2,000 plains bison [B.b. bison]). In addition, the diseases are of grave economic concern to the burgeoning commercial bison industry in the region.
