SPECIAL ALERT! LARGEST WILD BISON
SLAUGHTER SINCE 19TH CENTURY
We haven't put up every email form the Buffalo Field Campaign, because we have many articles and links to their site. Just in case, anyone thinks the situation has changed for the better in the last 3 years, this letter will tell you otherwise. If you want current and updated information on the Yellowstone Buffalo, visit the http://buffalofieldcampaign.org website and sign up to receive emails! ~ Stone Woman.
Dear Buffalo Friends,
We have entered the largest scale wild buffalo slaughter since the 19th century. Now is the time to contact Congress and urge them to take proactive measures to stop the slaughter and protect America's last wild bison population and its habitat.
CONTACT CONGRESS NOW!

The U.S. Government Accountability Office has completed its report on the Interagency Bison Management Plan and an associated $13,000,000 land deal near Yellowstone National Park requested by Rep. Nick J. Rahall II and Rep. Maurice Hinchey in response to public outcry over the ongoing slaughter of Yellowstone's wild bison, and the failure of the land deal to provide habitat for wild migrating bison. We
encourage you to contact their offices directly on the report's availability and what Congress intends to do next.
Since its inception, this multimillion dollar taxpayer funded plan has eliminated 3,079 wild buffalo from the Yellowstone ecosystem, mainly on public lands in America's flagship Yellowstone National Park and the Gallatin National Forest.
This season's death toll, which so far numbers 1,160 wild bison, surpasses that of 1996-1997 when 1,084 bison were killed and constitutes the largest wild bison slaughter since the 19th century.
