From New West: Is Gardiner, Montana, the Selma, Alabama, of Wildlife Conservation?

This is a must read article written by Michael Leach on the brutal, heavy-handed treatment Yellowstone’s iconic bison are receiving. We can thank the members of the  Inter-agency Bison Management Plan, including the National Park Service, USDA-Forest Service, USDA-Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service, Montana Department of Livestock and Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks. Shame on what you are doing to Yellowstone’s bison!!
