Buffalo have been forced to travel for many many miles - upwards of 20 - nonstop, without rest.  Perhaps a quarter of these buffalo are newborn calves, and scores of them pregnant mothers who have yet to give birth, or who are in labor at the time of the haze.  As I write, patrols are reporting that they've spotted a mama buffalo with a wet calf, brand new to the world and about to experience the dark side of the human race.  They are being forced to travel at unnatural distances and speeds that a mother buffalo would never ask her baby to cover under natural circumstances.  Inexorable government forces push them over terrain and swollen waterways difficult to negotiate under fear, as they are pursued by federally-funded cowfolks on horseback, federal, state and county law enforcement, and the Montana Department of Livestock's helicopter.   It is heart-wrenching to see these buffalo tormented so, little babies doing everything they can to keep up with mom, no matter how far or how fast; moms trying to shelter their babies from harm, entire family groups trying to escape the yelling predators in cowboy hats and the metal bird that threatens to land upon their backs and devour them.   And this, so say the grinning agents, is the "kinder alternative" to slaughter that bison advocates are supposed to be thankful for.

** SPECIAL ALERT!  **

Buffalo Field Campaign



Dear Friends of the Buffalo,

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) has released a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) on the translocation of quarantined Yellowstone bison and is seeking your input through January 12, 2010. 

FWP's preferred alternative outlines the agency's intention to hand over 74 Yellowstone bison to billionaire Ted Turner, setting the dangerous precedent of commercializing public bison.  BFC has strongly opposed quarantine, alternatively advocating for wild bison to be naturally restored on their historic range via protected habitat and migration corridors.  That said, it is important that bison advocates try to help these quarantined Yellowstone buffalo get out of captivity and be released onto public and/or tribal lands, as was the stated goal of the Quarantine Feasibility Study.

Learn more and TAKE ACTION NOW! 

Comments are due January 12, 2010.

Please join us on Vote4cause to vote for the bison again.   Over 1200 have been slaughtered this past year and it was all so UNNECESSARY!  We need to bring enlightenment and pledges to this very worthy cause.   Ask your friends to come also please.   Thank you and God bless you for helping!
