Update: National Park Service Has slaughtered 715 Wild Buffalo in Yellowstone and Plan to Slaughter 110 more
Even calves have been sent to slaughter.
For the background info and the latest updates from the field visit The Buffalo Field Campaign Website here: http://www.buffalofieldcampaign.org
Also check out the article, "A Sickening Slaughter: Why Is Yellowstone Destroying Its Bison Herd?", by Bob Jackson, a backcountry ranger in Yellowstone Park for 30 years.
Why is our National Park Service slaughtering the last remaining wild buffalo that they are supposed to be protecting? It is to keep the wild buffalo off of grazing lands because the cattle industry views them as competition. Our Park Service should not be doing the bidding of the cattle industry, they should be protecting the park wildlife for future generations. Please take action!!
Please visit http://www.buffalofieldcampaign.org , listen to the audio in the below posts, and then call Yellowstone Superintendent Suzanne Lewis and Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer
