Update: National Park Service Has slaughtered 715 Wild Buffalo in Yellowstone and Plan to Slaughter 110 more

Since February 8, 825 individual buffalo have been captured by the Park Service and the Department of Livestock. 715 of these buffalo have already been slaughtered and 110 are currently being held in the Stephen's Creek trap awaiting shipment to the slaughterhouse. Including those killed in this year's hunt and those being held in the trap, 990 bison have been removed from the Yellowstone population since November 15. In the past seven days alone, 164 bison have been captured and 209 sent to slaughter.

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:

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!!
