[Ed. Note: Take more action - Urge Governor Schweitzer to Veto Bad Buffalo Bills. Please watch Bison Hazing and Bison Slaughter Facility. If you eat beef, you are likely  contributing to the capture, torment, slaughter of wild bison. The ONLY reason the bison are captured, tormented, slaughtered is because the cattle industry claims that bison eat grass, thus competing with the cattle. In case you didn't know, this is all done on OUR public lands to OUR wild bison, for the sake of cattle-industry profiteers.]

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

U.S. Representatives Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), both long time advocates for America's last wild buffalo are circulating a letter to National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis urging Yellowstone National Park not to slaughter over 660 buffalo now held in traps in the Gardiner basin and to develop "a more scientifically sound, comprehensive, humane, and publicly acceptable bison policy that fully embodies the mission and purpose of the National Park Service."

SAMPLE LETTER:

I am writing to you because wild American buffalo are important to me, and our nation's last continuously wild population - the Yellowstone herds - are in need of your help.

A letter sponsored by Rep. Hinchey and Rep. Grijalva is circulating through the U.S. House, which urges National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis to direct Yellowstone National Park not to slaughter over 660 buffalo now held in traps in the Gardiner basin and to develop "a more scientifically sound, comprehensive, humane, and publicly acceptable bison policy that fully embodies the mission and purpose of the National Park Service."

This letter will also circulate through the Senate.

As your constituent, I implore you to sponsor this letter and take a stand for our national heritage, the wild American buffalo. It is time for the National Park Service to get back to its mission of protecting wild buffalo for present and future generations.

Thank you. I look forward to your response.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
