3 Responses to Agencies that manage Yellowstone bison plan public meeting in Bozeman Dec. 4

  1. Robert Hoskins says:

    I would hope that as many people in Montana as possible would attend this and inform the agencies that the so-called bison management plan is a disgrace in every detail. I am going to try and go up from Wyoming to attend this, if the weather permits.

  2. kim kaiser says:

    dont forget the video camera,, seems those do the best at documenting these things,

  3. Buffaloed says:

    BFC takes a video camera or two everywhere it goes. I’m sure this will be no exception.

    I would like to attend this meeting (I’m still in western Idaho) but I’m sure the buffalo folks will be represented since BFC is so near Bozeman. I encourage anyone that can make it to attend and speak up for the buffalo. It seems a rare opportunity for people to speak directly to the agencies.

‎"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."
