Approximately 50 wild buffalo are in the trap near West Yellowstone's airport right now. After all their quotes in papers worldwide promising not to slaughter any buffalo left in Montana, the agencies have back-tracked on their word to the American people and others throughout the world.
MONTANA INTENDS TO SLAUGHTER WILD BUFFALO TODAY.
A Montana Department of LIEStock press release stated they will capture andslaughter any bull bison that are in the small group of approximately 50 still in Montana. They claim the
bison trap cannot handle bulls, which is another lie because, as you know, they've
captured and sent to slaughter hundreds of bull bison over the years. Intent to slaughter bull bison was confirmed by officials with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
Bull bison pose no risk of brucellosis transmission. With calving season over, none of the buffalo pose any risk of brucellosis transmission to cattle. There are no cattle on the public
lands that wild bison are migrating to. There has never been a confirmed case of wild bison transmitting brucellosis to cattle.
Agencies might also send yearling buffalo to theCorwin Springs quarantine facility, where they will be raised like livestock and used in scientific experiments. Half of all theyearlings sent to
Corwin Springs will be slaughtered.
Apparently, the agencies will still transport the buffalo mothers and calves they capture in West Yellowstone to thePark's Stephens Creek bison trap near Gardiner. Transport is going to
be a living hell for these moms and calves who will be separated for the over 150-mile long journey. They will hold the bisoncaptive for a few days before releasing them.
BFC patrols are in the field documenting everything and doing a lot of community outreach near the capture facility.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION and attempt to save the lives of these bulls and yearlings. We've done it once, let's do it again.
Please spread the word to save this herd!

Ask her why she is part of the lie? Do not allow Montana to slaughter bulls or put yearlings in quarantine! These are AMERICA'S last wild buffalo, not Montana's. Tell her you know the
Stephens Creek trap could hold bulls, so there's no reason that Montana should slaughter

Thank you for keeping the pressure on these officials!
These wild buffalo are the country's last. They have never transmitted the cattle-disease brucellosis back to the cows they got it from. They are native to all of Montana and have a right to roam,especially on our public lands.
