**** SPECIAL ALERT! Phone Calls Needed Today to Help Stop Buffalo Slaughter
Dear Friends of Wild Buffalo,
Yellowstone National Park has approximately 150 of America’s last wild buffalo captive in their Stephens Creek bison trap. Yellowstone intends to begin shipping these gentle giants to slaughter facilities this week! Why does Yellowstone want to kill America’s last wild buffalo? Because Montana’s livestock industry wants them to.
There is no justification for it, no matter what the Park Service tells you. Wild bison are not overpopulated, and the so-called brucellosis threat is a livestock industry smokescreen being used to kill wild buffalo and prevent them from being naturally restored on the landscape.
So many of you have been taking action, calling Yellowstone National Park frequently, urging them to set these buffalo free and stop the slaughter. Thank you so much! Unfortunately, Yellowstone has been unresponsive, caring only about livestock industry concerns. Yellowstone still needs to hear from you, but we need increase our pressure and take our message further up, to the White House. We also need to contact Montana Governor Steve Bullock and tell him to end livestock industry policies and intolerance which are the driving force behind Yellowstone’s participation in the slaughter of America’s last wild buffalo.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY!
* CALL THE WHITE HOUSE: #202-456-1111
Tell them to make Yellowstone stop the buffalo slaughter and set the captive buffalo free! There is no justification for the killing of the world’s most important bison population, beloved the world over.
Tell them you do not want your hard-earned tax dollars to be spent on destroying a natural, national treasure.
* CALL MONTANA GOVERNOR STEVE BULLOCK: #406-444-3111
Tell him you stand with the majority of Montanans who want wild, migratory bison restored in this state. Tell him bison slaughter hurts tourism, and insist that he work to end livestock industry policies and intolerance, which are the driving force behind Yellowstone’s participation in the slaughter of America’s last wild buffalo.
* CALL YELLOWSTONE’S SUPERINTENDENT DAN WENK: #307-344-2002
Demand that he cease catering to livestock industry intolerance, release the captured buffalo, and end plans to slaughter! His decisions to slaughter America’s last wild buffalo go against the National Park Service’s mission and Yellowstone’s own bison science!
Thank you so much for taking these actions for the country’s last wild buffalo!
