Thank you so much Anumpeshi, Terry and Birdie! Hey, if you all have any articles about Yellowstone or bison please be sure to post them for all to read. We want to stay up to date on the happenings going on.
Anumpeshi, I agree wholeheartedly with you about Ted Turner. When do people have 'enough'? I wouldn't know what to do with so much money and frankly I don't want to know. I am poor but so rich in blessings. It is sickening people are so greedy and want so much money and power. Those are the ones who don't take the time to see the beauty all around them in the mountains, flowers, trees....well nature. I feel sorry for those kinds of people..never knowing the serenity and beauty of just 'being'.
The bison/buffalo that I fight so hard for are the 100% genetically pure ones. Of course I don't want any animal slaughtered but the ones that are 'raised' are not the purebred ones. There are less than 1600 left of the 100% pure out of the millions that once roamed thisearth. 2 yrs ago there were 3000 of them but thanks to hazing and slaughter of them the numbers are now very low and we need to fight to stop the slaughter of them. It is so amazing that these pure ones are still around....I believe in the early 1900's that all had been killed except maybe 20 (out of millions). In fact I once thought them extinct. When I found out they were still around I was joyous! If I can find the article I will post the link. It is sad but oh so interesting that they made a comeback. To see especially those killed is heartbreaking to me.
Yellowstone Buffalo History
The Yellowstone herd is both genetically and behaviorally unique, being the only herd with continuously wild ancestry from the days when 50 million buffalo migrated freely across the Great Plains. At the end of the 19th century, after tens of millions had been slaughtered, only 23 wild buffalo survived. Taking refuge in Yellowstone's remote Pelican Valley, this remnant herd ensured the survival of the species in the wild. Today there are a little more than 3,000 buffalo living in and around Yellowstone, comprising America's only free-roaming and unfenced population.
