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:

  1. Diane Martin-Brodak says:

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

  2. Maximilian Werner says:

    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.

  3. Ida Lupine says:

    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.

‎"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."
