America's last wild buffalo number approximately 4,400 down from 40-60 million strong in the mid 1800's. Our government continues to harrass, capture and kill these magnificent animals and has created an arbitrary population limit of 3,000-3,500, primarily based on politics, not sound science. Yellowstone National Park plans on capturing and slaughtering 800 wild buffalo this Winter, the capture and slaughter is now underway.
Please sign this petition urging Superintendent Wenk to stop the capture and slaughter of America's last wild buffalo. And, please telephone his office urging him to stop the capture and slaughter. His number is: (307) 344-2002.
Please visit the Buffalo Field Campaign for more information on this heartbreaking situation.
