  • Yellowstone bison slaughter hits all time record

    Dear Buffalo Friends,

    Thank you all for responding to so many calls to action in defense of the buffalo. We must press on with endless pressure, endlessly applied. Please continue to contact your members of Congress to share solutions and urge them to stop the senseless slaughter and take proactive steps to defend the migratory freedom of the last wild buffalo herds.

    Now that Yellowstone and Montana have conducted the worst wild buffalo slaughter since the 19th Century - having killed 1,181 buffalo, or more than a quarter of the population, Yellowstone National Park has announced that they will "transition" operations at the Stephens Creek bison trap and begin holding captured bison until spring green-up. While this means some of the buffalo may not be shipped to slaughter, their wild integrity is still at risk since those that remain in the pens will be confined and fed hay like livestock.
