FORT PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Stanley County commissioners have approved a feedlot at a bison ranch owned by media mogul Ted Turner.

Bad River Ranch manager Dusty Hepper said in the permit request that the feeding facility will meet state and federal requirements. It will handle nearly 1,000 bison. It will be more than 2.5 miles from the nearest residence.

Commissioners approved the request after a public hearing on Monday.

Turner bought the ranch west of Fort Pierre about 15 years ago. It encompasses about 220 square miles and has more than 4,000 bison.
