UPDATE FROM THE FIELD May 9, 2013
1 year ago
LOOK HOW THEY ARE HAZING PREGNANT BISON AND BABIES!!! Pathetic! Poor babies and pregnant moms.

Your federal tax dollars are being grossly wasted to abuse America's last wild buffalo as relentless hazing operations continue. In the Gardiner Basin, small groups and solitary buffalo have been hazed, simply because a few private property owners don't want the buffalo on "their" land. Here in the Hebgen Basin, every day except Sunday, wild buffalo were repeatedly forced off of their chosen ground around Denny Creek and the South Fork of the Madison River. Each day the buffalo would return, as would the riders who rudely pushed them away in a cruel game that no one wins, least of all the buffalo. And the buffalo are pointlessly being chased off parts of Gallatin National Forest that livestock will never occupy as well as other privately owned prime wildlife habitat where only a few cattle will graze for a few months starting in mid-June.
