Yellowstone Bison: Room to roam at last?

Latest News: Thanks in large part to GYC’s effort to secure more habitat for bison outside Yellowstone National Park, today bison are roaming north of Yellowstone in the Gardiner basin. The Montana Supreme Court recently declined to hear an appeal brought by Park County to prevent habitat expansion in the Gardiner basin. Our nation’s wild bison will now continue to have access to habitat north of the Park boundary when they migrate each winter!

Meanwhile, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has put forth a proposal to allow bison year round in several places on public lands: most notably, the Hebgen Basin, Gardiner Basin and the upper Gallatin River corridor. GYC supports an alternative that would allow Yellowstone bison to roam on habitat on as many as 421,000 acres outside the park. To read about the alternatives, and our support of Alternative B, click here.

Overview: For more than a half-century, Yellowstone bison were the only wildlife in the U.S. largely confined by the boundary lines of a national park. Now, we might be closer to having this treasure trove of genetically pure wild bison roaming free outside of the park's boundaries year-round.

Wild bison from Yellowstone National Park are some of the most intensely tested wildlife in the country. Because some of the Yellowstone bison herd carries the disease brucellosis -- a disease that can abort calves in ungulates like cattle -- many cattle ranchers in Montana are worried about bison transferring the disease to their cattle. It gets complicated, however, because elk carry the same disease and they aren't tested. Moreover, it has never been proven that bison have ever transferred the disease. Even so, wild bison are often captured and tested when they wander out of Yellowstone and into the state of Montana.

After all the testing, when Yellowstone bison are repeatedly proven to be disease-free, some bison have been allowed to be transferred to appropriate lands, including two Indian Reservations in Montana: Fort Peck and Fort Belknap. In 2012, 62 arrived at Fort Peck, Later that year, a judge prohibited other bison to be transferred to Fort Belknap. But in 2013, the Montana Supreme Court cleared the way for 34 of those Yellowstone bison to arrive at Fort Belknap Indian Reservation

The winter of 2007-08 is still fresh in our minds when nearly 1,600 wild Yellowstone bison were captured and hauled in trucks for slaughter at meatpacking plants. The transfer of wild Yellowstone bison to Fort Peck, Fort Belknap and other suitable landscapes across the West will help ensure we never see a repeat of this atrocity again.

Project goals: We are working toward a day when Yellowstone bison can roam freely on appropriate public and private lands through policy changes by federal and state agencies and wildlife managers, retirements of cattle grazing operations, and negotiations with landowners.

Signed the petition to the Gov of Montana to stop the needless killing and also to the tribal leaders.  Actually did that one before but sent another anyway.  The Bullafo Field people work so hard to save these beautiful animals and in some areas headway has been made but the fight must go on.  The ranchers are so used to getting their own way it makes me sick.

Signed .  This crap ought to scare the hell out of anyone.  Just immediately brought back to mind, the case of Justina Pelletier.

  

South Dakota continues to violate the federal law by placing 90% of the 750 Lakota foster children it seizes each year into non-Native homes and facilities, instead of with relatives or tribal homes. Both federal law and the United Nations define this behavior as genocide. Only tribal programs are placing foster children with their relatives. 

President Obama has the authority to order three federal agencies (the Department of the Interior, the Department of Justice and Department of Health and Human Services), to provide resources to train and develop tribal family service programs and foster care systems for the nine Lakota Sioux tribal Councils. Within a short time, the $60 million in federal funds that currently go to the State of South Dakota’s Department of Social Services to illegally remove Indian children and force them into foster care can instead be spent and managed by the tribes, as they work to keep children with relatives, while restoring tribal sovereignty. 

  

But it hasn't been, has it?!   Time to keep on the so called Child Protective services and other federal agencies,  as I've noticed for years and heard from others, they far too often do not always have the childs best interest at heart.

Thank you for inviting me into this important group Tasunka. I will visit as often as possible.
I am unable to sign the South Dakota psychiatric facilities being used for the new Indian boarding schools. This disgusts me to no end!
I won't say Happy Memorial Day as there is nothing Happy about this day at all. I will wish you all have a LOVELY DAY and take a moment to remember the significance of this 'holiday'.
