This time the article is in the New York Times.

Although it isn’t the only uncontaminated herd of bison, this is another reason with conserving the Yellowstone Park bison is so important, and I think a reason to let them set up and live adjacent to, but outside Yellowstone Park on public land, which is cattle free (so no danger of passing brucellosis to cattle, assuming we even buy into that story).

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
