What is the cost to taxpayers?

See also Taxpayer Costs Financial Disclosure Reports

At present, the federal and state agencies behind the Interagency Bison Management Plan are wasting $3 million tax-dollars each year to harm America's wild buffalo as they migrate into Montana. The U.S. Congress appropriates your tax money to each agency in the federal budgeting process.
(Contact the politicians and ask them to redirect taxpayer money to let buffalo roam free)

The American taxpayer picks up the tab for nearly all of Montana Department of Livestock costs directed at removing or slaughtering wild buffalo in Montana. The figures below are incurred state costs, and do not reflect the hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars flowing from the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to the Montana Department of Livestock.

U.S. Government Accountability Office Estimated Bison Management Expenditures
(Unadjusted for Inflation) Fiscal Years 2002-2007


National Park Service: $7,258,013
Forest Service: $639,428
*Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service: $7,526,576
Montana Department of Livestock: $128,977
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks: $379,295
Total: $15,932,288

* Figures for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture APHIS "include the agency's expenditures for operating costs as well as the funds it provides to the Montana Department of Livestock for bison operations and research activities. The Montana Department of Livestock uses these funds to pay personnel and purchase equipment used for bison management activities outside the park and to contract with Montana, Fish, Wildlife and Parks to conduct research on elk, pregnant bison, and the quarantine feasibility study."
