Florida Tycoon Selling Off Dakotas Cattle Ranch

September 6, 2012, 6:46 AM

FORT YATES, ND -

A Florida real estate tycoon who owns a controversial bison ranch in the Dakotas is selling a separate cattle ranch.

Maurice Wilder's 12,000-acre Wilder Cattle Ranch is to be sold at auction on Sept. 14. Auctioneer Adam Karrels says he is not aware of any plans to sell the 35,000-acre bison ranch that straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border.

Relations between Wilder and ranchers in the Dakotas have been strained for years. The bison ranch has sparked complaints and lawsuits over animals allegedly running loose and causing problems for neighbors. Last year, authorities impounded more than 3,000 of Wilder's bison after reports of starving animals. Wilder paid $57,000 for feed and expenses after the impoundment ended and took about 850 bison to auction.
