I don’t know if you know about the situation, but the last wild buffalo herd is being tormented with our tax dollars. Can’t we spend this money on education or roads or homes for the homeless instead?
What the heck is going on here?
We are paying for this cruelty with our tax dollars. The Interagency Bison Management Plan is estimated to cost American taxpayers over $3,000,000 annually. WE are paying for this abuse.
Montana’s participation in the bison plan is nearly all paid for by American taxpayers through funding agreements that have been in place for well over a decade with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The Department of Interior’s National Park Service also wastes federal money to participate in Montana’s bison abuse and slaughter.
I think we can do better than this!
This is outrageous and unacceptable. If you have any opportunity to stop this craziness and stop the abuse of these beautiful animals, please do. Why correcting this alone, this one issue, can help get the world back into balance in every way. Respecting the Buffalo’s right to roam Will lead us down the right path. Hey they were here before us! Let’s start there.
Find out and Support the Buffalo Field Campaign,
they are on the front lines protecting the Last Wild Buffalo Herd
The Yellowstone bison herd is unique, and is descended from 23 individuals who survived the 19th century near-extinction by taking refuge in the Park’s remote backcountry.
Unfortunately, America’s only truly wild, genetically pure buffalo find themselves at the center of a violent conflict that can result in the yearly slaughter of hundreds or thousands of buffalo.
Yellowstone does not provide sufficient winter range for the resident herds of wildlife due to the deep snows of its high elevation plateaus. Animals leave the Park to forage on lower elevation grasses necessary for winter survival. When buffalo follow their instinctual migration routes to lower elevations, as they traditionally have done, they unwittingly enter a conflict zone where their survival is undermined by Montana politics.
The Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is the only group working in the field, everyday, to stop the slaughter and harassment of Yellowstone’s wild buffalo. Volunteers from around the world defend buffalo on their traditional winter habitat and advocate for their protection. Our daily patrols stand with the buffalo on the ground they choose to be on, and document every move made against them. This is the only continuously wild Buffalo herd left.
Here’s a video we shot a couple years ago with one of the founders, Mike Mease, in Los Angeles —
