"Bison slaughter in Yellowstone National Park draws protest against Park Service" article in National Parks Traveler
A write-up on yesterday's Buffalo Field Campaign event in West Yellowstone, MT, that Genevieve, River, and I attended has been accepted and posted on the Webzine National Parks Traveler.
I plan to write a much fuller piece about it that expresses my point of view on the entire experience, especially my firsthand contact with Buffalo Field Campaign, which was an extremely rewarding experience.
Look for that piece to be written today or tomorrow. For now, the article stands. (Note, I did not write the caption on National Parks Traveler under the photo, which suggests that bison are in fact slaughtered to prevent the spread of brucellosis, which is not what I actually believe to be the case.)
I do want to thank Kurt Repanshek for posting the article; hopefully, it will help draw attention to the issue. It's shaping up already to be a very bad year for buffalo in and around Yellowstone National Park.
I also want to thank Buffalo Field Campaign for their warmth to my family; the soup at lunch was the best I've had in a very long time.
