EMERGENCY ALERT! Slaughter of Buffalo Calves Planned by Montana

Dear Buffalo Friends,

The last wild buffalo need your help today!

The Montana Department of Livestock (DOL) has set up a bison trap
near the West Yellowstone airport, on state land and they intend to
begin capturing approximately 300 wild buffalo - including tiny
newborn babies and their whole families - starting Thursday.

Click here to see photos of the beautiful buffalo babies and their
families that are slated for execution:

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:

PLEASE CONTACT these three decision-makers TODAY demanding that they
cease plans to capture and slaughter the buffalo who are trying to
live wild and free! Contact each by phone, fax, and email and let's
not let them forget that the world is watching!

* MONTANA GOVERNOR BRIAN SCHWEITZER: Demand that Schweitzer keep his campaign promise to provide tolerance for bison in Montana.
(406) 444-3111 (phone)
(406) 444-5529 (fax)
governor@mt.gov (email)

* MONTANA ACTING STATE VET JEANNE RANKIN: Urge her to withdraw her decision to slaughter Yellowstone bison calves and family groups.
Remind her you are boycotting beef and your friends are joining you!
(406) 444-1895 (phone)
(800) 523-3162 (phone)
(406) 444-1929 (fax)
jrankin@mt.gov (email) 

* YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK SUPERINTENDENT SUZANNE LEWIS: Ask her if it's really worth the lives of 300 wild buffalo, including newborn
calves, to have Montana ship them to slaughter rather than deeper
into the Park.
(307) 344-2002 (phone)
(307) 344-2005 (fax)
suzanne_lewis@nps.gov OR yell_superintendent@nps.gov (email)
