WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO.
Your calls are needed now.
Approximately 50 wild buffalo are in the trap near West
Yellowstone's airport right now. After all their
quotes in papers worldwide promising not to slaughter
any buffalo left in Montana, the agencies have back-tracked
on their word to the American people and others throughout
MONTANA INTENDS TO SLAUGHTER WILD BUFFALO TODAY.
A Montana Department of LIEStock press release stated
they will capture and slaughter any bull bison that
are in the small group of approximately 50 still in
Montana. They claim the bison trap cannot handle
bulls, which is another lie because, as you know, they've
captured and sent to slaughter hundreds of bull bison
over the years. Intent to slaughter bull bison was confirmed
by officials with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
Bull bison pose no risk of brucellosis transmission.
With calving season over, none of the buffalo pose any
risk of brucellosis transmission to cattle. There
are no cattle on the public lands that wild bison are
migrating to. There has never been a confirmed
case of wild bison transmitting brucellosis to cattle.
Agencies might also send yearling buffalo to the Corwin
Springs quarantine facility, where they will be raised
like livestock and used in scientific experiments.
Half of all the yearlings sent to Corwin Springs will
Apparently, the agencies will still transport the
buffalo mothers and calves they capture in West Yellowstone
to the Park's Stephens Creek bison trap near Gardiner.
Transport is going to be a living hell for these moms
and calves who will be separated for the over 150-mile
long journey. They will hold the bison captive for a
few days before releasing them.
BFC patrols are in the field documenting everything
and doing a lot of community outreach near the capture
PLEASE TAKE ACTION
and attempt to save the lives of these bulls and yearlings.
We've done it once, let's do it again. Please
spread the word to save this herd!

Ask him why he lied. Demand that Schweitzer keep
his promise to not slaughter any buffalo! Tell
him the solution is in year-round habitat for wild buffalo

* YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK SUPERINTENDENT SUZANNE
LEWIS: Ask her why she is part of the
lie? Do not allow Montana to slaughter bulls or
put yearlings in quarantine! These are AMERICA'S
last wild buffalo, not Montana's. Tell her you
know the Stephens Creek trap could hold bulls, so there's
no reason that Montana should slaughter them!

Thank you for keeping the pressure on these officials!
These wild buffalo are the country's last. They
have never transmitted the cattle-disease brucellosis
back to the cows they got it from. They are native
to all of Montana and have a right to roam, especially
on our public lands.
SPREAD THE WORD ~ SAVE THE HERD!
