ACTION

Please contact Yellowstone's Superintendent Dan Wenk and tell him not to slaughter any of our 600 buffalo being held prisoner! Please also urge him to pull out of the failed Interagency Bison Management Plan, and set all the trapped buffalo free! Remind him that Yellowstone's responsibility is to protect wild buffalo, not Montana's livestock interests.

And/Or better yet, make direct contact:

Superintendent Dan Wenk
Yellowstone National Park
P.O. Box 168
Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Over 660 wild buffalo are being held prisoner by Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone intends to ship some buffalo to slaughter, and we must stop them!


 A view from inside the two prisons where wild buffalo are being held and fed

Baby buffalo are now being born inside these horrible traps, and they, their mothers, and their families must be set free. Yellowstone had said they would release them all but now they intend to ship 100 buffalo to slaughter houses in Idaho.

Please contact Yellowstone's Superintendent Dan Wenk and tell him not to slaughter any of our buffalo! Please also urge him to pull out of the failed Interagency Bison Management Plan, and set all the trapped buffalo free! Remind him that Yellowstone's responsibility is to protect wild buffalo, not Montana's livestock interests. Using the suggested sample letter below, please express your distaste for Yellowstone's continued maltreatment of wild buffalo. If you have been to Yellowstone, or have always dreamed of going there, you may want to share your experiences and elaborate on what Yellowstone and the buffalo mean to you.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
