Buffalo Slaughter In Yellowstone Continues; 1,400 Killed So Far This Year

On Tuesday, April 8th I interviewed Stephany Seay, media coordinator for the Buffalo Field Campaign about the continuing slaughter of wild buffalo by the National Park Service, the Montana Dept. of Livestock and other state agencies in the Yellowstone area. Listen Here

Stephany and I discuss the reasons given for the slaughter, why those justifications are questionable, and the varied forms of resistance and tactics used by defenders of the wild buffalo. Also discussed, how local bison advocates and landowners are calling for changed management and increased tolerance for bison in a cattle-free zone outside western boundary of Yellowstone National Park, A U.S. Government Accountability Office report made public April 2nd sharply criticizing a slew of federal and state agencies behind the Interagency Bison Management Plan, (the governing document responsible for the slaughter of over 3,300 wild American buffalo in and around Yellowstone National Park), and an upcoming releasing of the buffalo spirits ceremony.
