End the Hazing and Killing of Our Wild Bison

From Natural Resources Defense Council

Yellowstone's buffalo are an iconic symbol of America. It's time to start protecting them instead of letting them be hazed and killed on Forest Service lands.

Please designate suitable Forest Service land outside the Park -- like Horse Butte -- as year-round buffalo habitat. Let the buffalo roam free outside Yellowstone once again!

INFORMATION

Government agencies continue their annual hazing and slaughter of Yellowstone National Park’s buffalo this spring.

The Yellowstone herd is now down to only 3,000 animals -- the only continuously wild and free-roaming herd left in America. Each spring some of these buffalo leave snow-covered Yellowstone in search of food at lower elevations or to give birth.

This past April and May, they were met with cruel hazing operations aimed at stopping the buffalo from migrating to their spring feeding and birthing grounds.

Government agents used helicopters, ATVs and horses to force hundreds of buffalo back into Yellowstone. Videotape taken by the Buffalo Field Campaign documented the senseless hazing of a newborn buffalo calf with a broken leg. Buffalo were even hazed inside the Park!


Read a recent report from The Buffalo Field Campaign, End Yellowstone Bison Hazing, including photographs.

NOTE: Buffalo Field Campaign Needs Summer Volunteers.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
