Yellowstone National Park says it’s making progress reducing the number of non-native lake trout. 

Park and contract crews caught and killed over 280,000 lake trout from Yellowstone Lake between May and October, according to a press release Friday. The total tally is less than last year and the year before that, which is a good thing.
