There are not that many Bison left. Leave them alone. Millions have died..the species may not survive.
I have read the recent news articles about your plans to capture and slaughter wild bison that migrate through Yellowstone into Montana and I absolutely refuse to allow you to carry these actions out.
It seems that Montana hardly needs a Department of Livestock with Yellowstone so willing to bend over backwards to do the livestock industry's bidding. I am appalled by your actions towards wild buffalo.
Wild bison are ecologically extinct, and Yellowstone harbors the last continuously wild population. You cannot hide behind the Interagency Bison Management Plan nor the indefensible arguments about brucellosis.
Your participation in the Interagency Bison Management Plan is shameful and I absolutely oppose Yellowstone's involvement. You are causing irreparable harm to these gentle giants, all to placate the selfish whims of Montana's livestock industry. This is not your charge. You are responsible for protecting wild bison, the American people have entrusted you with this great honor and you are failing to live up to it.
Please protect the wild bison of Yellowstone! Pull out of the Interagency Bison Management Plan and abandon any and all plans to harass, harm and kill wild bison!
The American people have had enough. Stop the bison abuse and slaughter now.
