Tell the Park Service to Save Yellowstone's Buffalo, Not Slaughter Them!

We must halt the brutal killing of Yellowstone’s buffalo by the National Park Service and Montana’s Department of Livestock. It is unconscionable that more than 1,000 buffalo from America’s last wild, free-roaming herd have been sent to the slaughterhouse this winter. Tell the National Park Service to be the guardian of our country’s wild bison -- not their executioner!

Stop Yellowstone Buffalo Slaughter

Thanks Dori—
There was a small herd, not free roaming west of Denver, does anybody knew if this herd still exists?

"They" have so much power and money and greed. All we have is persistance and a love for the earth that belongs to the next generation and the generation after that.

Persistance. We have to keep fighting.

Thank you to all who care.

I no longer feel safe outside of the house based on several experiences. Don't get out much these days unless I'm doing a wedding.


Yellowstone is not what it used to be. For one thing, now you have wolves walking up and slicing the jugulars of the virtually tame elk. This has been captured on video tape. The fire also made most of it look odd.

I wonder what well connected rich folks are profiting from the buffalo meat.

Anger Over Culling of Yellowstone's Bison
By Jim Robbins
The New York Times

Sunday 23 March 2008

Gardiner, Montana - This was not the Yellowstone National Park that tourists see.

At first light on Tuesday, at the end of a closed road, past a boneyard of junk cars, trailers and old cabins, more than 60 of the park's wild bison were being loaded on a semi-trailer to be shipped to a slaughterhouse.

With heavy snow still covering the park's vast grasslands, hundreds of bison have been leaving Yellowstone in search of food at lower elevations. A record number of the migrating animals - 1,195, or about a quarter of the park's population - have been killed by hunters or rounded up and sent to slaughterhouses by park employees. The bison are being killed because they have ventured outside the park into Montana and some might carry a disease called brucellosis, which can be passed along to cattle.

The large-scale culling, which is expected to continue through April, has outraged groups working to preserve the park's bison herds, considered by scientists to be the largest genetically pure population in the country. It has also led to an angry exchange between Montana state officials and the federal government over a stalled agreement to create a haven for the bison that has not received the needed federal financing.
