Another recent Enterprise article stated since 2007, the four brucellosis infections have been traced to elk — yet bison continue to be the whipping boy of the disgraceful MT. Dept. of Livestock, FWP and our Governor Bullock.
It is time to wake up and smell the coffee. Cattle ranchers are bad neighbors; sportsmen groups lie about wolves; FWP fails miserably to educate the public about brucellosis; and Park County officials squander taxpayer dollars on wasteful lawsuits to appease a certain constituent — ranchers. I’m sick to death of all of it.
It’s time to hold all of these entities accountable for their lies and misinformation. Don’t eat Paradise Valley beef; don’t send money to sportsmen groups that lie; appoint people to MT Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks that have a spine; and find a way to get Brett Linneweber out of office. That would be a good beginning.
