AMERICA'S LAST WILD BISON STOLEN FROM YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK BY FEDERAL LIVESTOCK AGENCY FOR POPULATION CONTROL EXPERIMENT

Take Action | FOIA Documents (opens new window) | Background 

 

CORWIN SPRINGS, MONTANA: Without public notice or input Yellowstone National Park has consigned fifty-three of America's last wild bison captured during 2011 to the USDA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service for population control experiments. This move contradicts numerous public announcements from Yellowstone National Park officials that all wild bison captured during 2011 would be released. To facilitate the population control experiments, Yellowstone National Park intends to capture more bison at Stephens Creek inside the Park during the 2011/2012 winter season.

USDA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service plans to take up to 108 wild bison to experiment with GonaCon, a chemical sterilant/hormone disrupter under the highly controversial Interagency Bison Management Plan. 

 

USDA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service is a federal agency that oversees and promotes the livestock industry. Under the guise of research, this federal livestock overseer seeks to control wild bison and wildlife in the Yellowstone ecosystem.

The wild American bison is ecologically extinct throughout their native range inhabiting less than 1% of their historic range. By all measures wild buffalo are endangered and not to be treated like overpopulated 'pests' and chemically neutered.

Thank you ladies.  I am heartbroken.  It seems like Montana makes up their own rules and that they are trying to vaccinate or kill all the bulls so the species won't increase.
