Tell the Secretary of Agriculture to intervene right away and prevent the hazing of wild buffalo in the weeks ahead. As living links to the great herds that once thundered across America's plains, Yellowstone's buffalo are a national treasure.

Here is my prayer of protection for Bisons.

Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Svāhā - Tara, whose name means "star" or "she who ferries across," is a Bodhisattva of compassion who manifests in female form. "She Who Saves." In particular she represents compassion in action, since she’s in the process of stepping from her lotus throne in order to help sentient beings.
1. Tāre represents salvation from mundane dangers and suffering. Tara is seem as a savioress who can give aid from material threats such as floods, crime, wild animals, and traffic accidents. Tara is therefore said to protect against ordinary worldly dangers.
2. Tuttāre represents deliverance into the spiritual path conceived in terms of individual salvation. In traditional terms, this is the path of the Arhant, which leads to individual liberation from suffering. This is seen in Mahayana Buddhism as a kind of enlightenment in which compassion does not figure strongly. Tara therefore offers individual protection from the spiritual dangers of greed, hatred, and delusion: the three factors that cause us individual suffering.
3. Lastly, ture represents the culmination of the spiritual path in terms of deliverance into the altruistic path of universal salvation – the Bodhisattva path. In the Bodhisattva path we aspire for personal enlightenment, but we also connect compassionately with the sufferings of others, and strive to liberate them at the same time as we seek enlightenment ourselves. Tara therefore delivers us from a narrow conception of the spiritual life. She saves us from the notion that spiritual progress is about narrowly liberating ourselves from our own suffering, and instead leads us to see that true spiritual progress involves having compassion for others.
By the time we have been liberated from mundane dangers, liberated from a narrow conception of the spiritual path, and led to a realization of compassion, we have effectively become Tara. In Buddhist practice the "deities" represent our own inner potential. We are all potentially Tara. We can all become Tara.
Svaha, according to Monier Monier-William’s Sanskrit Dictionary, means: "Hail!", "Hail to!" or "May a blessing rest on!" We could see this final blessing as symbolizing the recognition that we are, ultimately, Tara.
Her mantra can therefore be rendered as something like "OM! Hail to Tara (in her three roles as a savioress)!"
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Mama Ayuh Punya Jñana Pustim Kuru Svaha
Mama means "mine" and indicates that you’d like to possess these qualities of long life, merit, wisdom, happiness, etc. You can of course choose to wish these qualities for someone else — perhaps for a teacher or for a loved one who is ill.

Thank you again Simone, for bringing this & other matters to our attention. Noted & signed! This country, &, I'm afraid, the whole human race (NOT animal lovers of course!), is headed for a huge disaster, just by what we are doing to our world, eachother, & all of God's creatures!! These people that do these things have NO heart, NO SOUL, &, NO compassion!!

What is it with Yellowstone that the government is allowing hunting of bison and wolves? Does not make any sense to me.

Petition signed. Thanks Simone for the opportunity to speak out for animals. Isn't it a shame that we have to protect them like this? All of mankind should make protecting animals and our environment a priority. Instead their greed over comes their common sense.

NOTED & SIGNED. I am SO sick of the DNR/Dept of Interior trigger-happy helicopter-hunter creeps who torture wild animals in the name of "managing" them. Bison have 'managed' themselves for millenia - they were here long before human eejits devolved onto the scene.

HERE AGAIN MAN TAKES THE LAW INTO HIS OWN HANDS - HE JUST DOESN'T WANT THE BUFFALO ON HIS PATCH AND SO MAKES UP THIS IDIOTIC FAIRY TALE ABOUT THE BUFFALO SPREADING DISEASE. JUST LIKE THE FARMERS IN WALES ARE WANTING RID OF THE BADGERS SO THEY SPREAD A COMPLETELY UNFOUNDED TALE OF HOW THE BADGERS SPREAD TB TO THEIR CATTLE.

In my humble opinion, I believe that they need to do drastic actions to keep all animals lovers busy fighting & defending all those atrocities & in the meantime they are securing their job & positions! And of course all the while drilling on forbidden grounds & parks, taking away habitats from wildlife & we are here, there & everywhere! Evil never has to fight back, only good continually has to defend, protect & secure! I signed!
