While many Americans were gearing up to celebrate Independence Day, freedom wasn't ringing for a small family group of America's last wild buffalo. Just west of Yellowstone National Park, near the South Fork of the Madison River, the most American of all creatures were being subjected to the tyranny of an unjust government.
Over a course of two days, BFC documented Montana Department of Livestock (DOL) stock inspectors hazing around thirty wild buffalo moms and calves off of their habitat, chasing them through the cattle-free public lands of Gallatin National Forest, and pushing them into the interior of Yellowstone National Park, using federal tax dollars to do this unnecessary dirty work. With no justification whatsoever for the maltreatment of this American icon, the DOL has formed a very bad habit over the last two decades: they are simply addicted to abusing wild buffalo. You can help BFC help them kick the habit.
Below we have included a variety of things you can do to take action, educate yourself and others, celebrate wild buffalo, keep BFC on the front lines, and join the growing tens of thousands who are dedicated to protecting the wild bison.
