Bison are incredible animals who once roamed the Great Plains in astounding numbers. According to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Bison populations were estimated to be 30 million – 60 million in the 1500s. Today, those numbers are a fraction of their former glory – only 20,000 – 25,000 remain in small herds across the US. The Yellowstone National Park Respresentives have recommended 900 park bison be removed this winter through hunting and ship-to-slaughter methods. A better solution would be to relocate these animals to other herds…there is NO reason to kill them. Join us in making our voice heard for the Bison who shouldn’t have to perish!
