* VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Intense Field Season Expected in Wild Bison Country!
Government agencies are planning to capture and kill possibly hundreds of wild bison this season. For the first time since 2008, the Montana Department of Livestock intends to put up the Horse Butte bison trap in mid-February. Near Gardiner, Yellowstone National Park is poised to capture wild buffalo from inside the park and hand them over to tribal officials for direct shipment to tribal slaughter facilities. Yellowstone may also hand over captured wild buffalo to the USDA-Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service for experimental use in a controversial birth control project. Hunting activities have already taken the lives of seventy-nine buffalo, and these numbers will likely increase as hunting will continue through mid-spring. After all of these malicious actions against wild bison, industrial-strength hazing operations will take place during the thrust of calving season. Buffalo Field Campaign invites you to join us on the front lines, here on the edge of the world's first national park, to help defend America's last wild buffalo. If you can spare a couple of weeks, a month, or stay with us for the rest of the season, we welcome your participation. BFC provides room, board, gear and training, while the wildlife and wild lands will provide incredible inspiration. Please visit our volunteer page to fill out an application, email our volunteer coordinators or call 406-646-0070. Bring your passion and your ideas. See you on the front lines!

I'm so sorry your leg is bruised, TAS. Take your time on posting until you feel better. I try to post the stories but I like that you post the links too. People sometimes would rather just click the links.
