* Update from the Field - TAKE ACTION!
The lands along Yellowstone's border remain quiet, with no sign of bison migration beginning yet. This is good news, as Montana's so-called bison hunt is set to begin ten days from now, on November 15. BFC volunteer migration has begun, however, and day by day more folks are arriving at BFC Headquarters to prepare for another season of buffalo defense.

Our thanks go out to everyone who has already sent in comments to the Animal & Plant Heath Inspection Service (APHIS) on their Bovine Brucellosis Program Concept Paper. APHIS would like nothing more than to continue mismanaging wild buffalo and elk for the benefit of the cattle industry, but your voice will challenge them to do otherwise. Nearly 100 comments have been posted so far, with the overwhelming majority being for the wild. APHIS will accept comments through December 4, 2009. You can read all about the proposal, review sample talking points, read Buffalo Field Campaign's official comments, and TAKE ACTION HERE.

Please share this information with your friends and colleagues and encourage them to speak up for the buffalo!

If you have questions please contact Darrell or Stephany.

* Thank You for a Successful West Coast Road Show!
A special thanks to all of the buffalo family who once again helped spread the word to save the herds. This fall's West Coast Road Show was a huge success.

First off, I would like to thank Good Shield who for the last six years has dropped everything in his life to come on tour to help the buffalo. Phoenix AfterBuffalo also came and played all the shows he could this year and has confirmed again for next year. Our newest helper and mentor is the visionary Derrick Jensen, who also committed to another show next year. Also a big thanks to Sampson and Krista for their help year in and year out, thanks for always being there. A big hearty thanks to the following people for making the Road Show a success: Nikiya, Laura, Sundog, Amber, Cove, Jasper, Tony, Suzanna, Frank, EARC, Sheila, Linda, Tony, Monica and Kingman. I'm sorry if I forgot your name but I truly am thankful to all who help us save the buffalo in any way.

I am planning a month long show next year Going from Washington to California and back up to Montana through Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Idaho. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to set one up in your community next year.

With the Buffalo,
Mike Mease
