Meanwhile captive bison killing each other due to competition for food.

Sarah Palin wants a 10j rule classifying reintroduced bison as experimental non-essential so that development of their habitat can go forward unimpeded.

    I want a 10j rule classifying Sarah Palin as experimental non-essential and i want Balyeat-type management applied to her.

    10j needs to go away

    Classy statement Mikarooni, I think the 10J rule has some merits in certain cases. I really think both drilling and Bison can coexist. They seem to do well together in the Yukon and Northern BC.

    True, they can coexist as much as oil and water can be mixed.

    What basis do you come up with that assessment? Caribou have thrived as have Plains buffalo in the Henry mountains.

    Have there been any studies done on the impacts of oil drilling on ungulate populations? I am just curious.

    Ryan,

    Because anything that gets in the way of development meets with a bullet and haven’t caribou and buffalo been decimated by ‘overpopulated’ predators in those areas?

    John D,

    You run your mouth awful reckless for a man that don’t go heeled.

    Nope, do research and come back with an edcuated opinion.

    Oh really so drilling and mining causes absolutely no problems for wildlife whatsoever then? Give me a break…

    John,

    With regards to Bison, history has proven otherwise.

‎"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."
