Yellowstone National Park Sends Hundreds of America’s Last Wild Buffalo to Slaughter
Excerpt: Under continued pressure from Montana livestock interests, Yellowstone National Park is sending hundreds of America’s last wild buffalo – the National Mammal of the U.S. – to slaughter.
i wish I knew how to stop the slaughter
Tragic, senseless slaughter. Not one recorded transmission of brucellosis from bison to beef cattle. The real reason, bison that stray from the confines of the parks are competing for grazing lands that beef cattle graze on, for the most part for free. Also sad is the sanctioned slaughter of wild horses, particularly mustangs.
start emailing everyone in government
problem being, it brings public attn. 4 a min., & then the assholes slide in later & do the same disgusting, perverted thing
I was horrified when BC was giving Yellowstone wolves and the farmer idiots down there went a shootin’
In Canada, we’re trying to maintain a population, so it would be a way to save the species.
you could contact your gov’t. & suggest the idea & see if it flies or not
I.. um…I used to work for them.. and there’s a bit of a communication thing… legal stuff. but ah… I will check the channels that I have, public mass awareness. the ordinary citizen demanding action of not only representatives but actual government departments can make a difference.
what we try to do here & protest in the streets
media coverage is good, letters are best, emails next, then petitions.
anything, every way, yes yes yes
I’ll see what I can do with the contacts that I have, it was a pleasure to share strategy
well, that sounded good! thanx. so what’s w/this slaughter then? now i’m confused.
that article is about a different herd,but it seems to me that the process should be similar

What is it with the GOP/Teabagger Nutters – tripping over themselves to sell of USA’s national parks to private interests? Cost cutting they claim. For what? Bigger tax cuts to the rich? Damn you to your respective hells, irresponsible biosphere destroyers. Phony Teabagger Jason Chaffits – Mr. waste-of-money-fake-endless-investigation of Hillary and Benghazi wants to save $$$ by giving away protected federal lands to private interests aka – bigoil/polluters. Absolute scum – and clearly not for the people of the United States of America. The GOP are sellouts to private interests – to whom they are tightly bound. This is not how American democracy is supposed to work. And under this god damned bannon-naz-led reckless executive branch, USA is going to get screwed like never before. Will the USA survive? – Is the question.

Trump’s Wall Could Have Unexpected Victims: Wildlife
❝ The National Park Service approaches the problem of climate change like the Department of Defense might take on a suspected military threat: With sober, calculated scenario planning.
The agency has had an “adaptation” team for climate change since around 2012, which has taken on scenario planning as a central tool. The special task force is staffed with federal-level “adaptation ecologists,” a very new job title, who work to plot out possible vulnerabilities for individual parks in a climate-changed future.
The Conservative response to scientists supporting climate change is that they do it for the money (I’ll pause here while you go check how much the typical academic scientist earns). The only way these folks stand to lose money is if climate change destroys the parks they maintain. What’s their secret reason for lying?
It’s no surprise the National Park Service is defying Trump. It is deathly serious about climate change
