Signatures Needed NOW To Stop Culling Of Up To 1,250 Yellowstone Bison!

Despite being the U.S. national mammal, bison have tragically been hunted to near extinction more than one hundred years ago.

Since being reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park they are nowhere near their once historic numbers.

Sadly, as per Care2, they may not be safe for long.

Federal, state, and tribal officials overseeing the Interagency Bison Management Plan for Yellowstone have determined that as many as 1,250 of the animals may be killed this winter in an ongoing effort to reduce ranchers’ misguided fears.

This is allowed because Yellowstone bison are managed under an agreement that calls for a population of only 3,000, leaving hundreds to thousands of these innocent animals to become victims of culling.

Some animals will be hunted once they leave the safety of the park in search of food, while others will be corralled in small pens and slaughtered.

Our partner Care2 and their community has created a petition advocating for these senseless killings to stop and to urge members of the Interagency Bison Management Plan committee to call off the 2017-2018 Yellowstone bison slaughter.

Plesse Sign The Petition HERE!
