New Bison Video From Yellowstone Voices

Bonnie Lynn, an activist who lives on the edge of Yellowstone Park, has produced a film that provides many voices (including me) discussing the tragic slaughter of Yellowstone’s unique bison herd.
One of the people featured in the film, biologist Jim Bailey, died just days before this film was released. Jim was a staunch advocate for Yellowstone bison, and hopefully, his vision of a wild bison herd at the Charles M. Russell NWR in Montana will someday be realized.
Please circulate the film widely.
Bonnie has more videos at her Yellowstone Voices website. Here is Bonnie’s website link:

    This killing of our bison is heart wrenching. Thank you for these videos…I’m sharing them everywhere.

    A powerful and well-made film. The video of the “hunt” is perhaps the most damning information of all. I will not forget it. M.

    I’ll have to find the courage to watch. The damage done by colonialism was so much that it cannot be fixed, IMO, and it is a sacrilege to have bison and other wildlife bear the brunt of human superiority battles once more. The time of the past is gone now.
