- SB 256 would make Montana’s wildlife agency liable for any property damage from wild bison, a precedent meant to financially prohibit bison restoration;
- SB 341 would require Montana’s wildlife agency to navigate a massive list of additional hurdles prior to relocation of any wildlife species and prohibit relocation if the species could impact livestock grazing, clearly intended to prevent bison relocation; and
- HB 396 would attempt to give county commissioners veto power over bison restoration within their counties - even on tribal lands and our federal public lands.
Just when I think that things couldn't get any worse for the poor bison, Tasunka...more setbacks and hurdles. Will things ever change for the better?
Tasunka, why are the Nez Perce & Umatilla killing bulls and pregnant cows??? What are treaty hunters? I thought all Native Americans were in support of protecting the bison.
That want to live like the old days. They remain unenlightened.Wanting bison tipis and meat.....rednecks, literally!
That's sad to me. I thought the bison would have friends in them.
it's much sadder to me,Vicky
thanks for the info Tasunka
