A case of the guilty investigating the effects of their crime?

When the House Republicans shut down the “non-essential” services of the U.S. government by failing to pass neither a budget, nor a continuing resolution by Oct. 1, the national parks closed. They had no money to operate.

During the shutdown process, the Service evacuated […]

While on this search bison regularly cross highways 191 and 287 in the Hebgen Basin of Montana and Highway 89 near Gardiner, Montana. The Buffalo Field Campaign is also out there to warn motorists of this danger with […]

The reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park turned the nation’s most prominent national park into a laboratory of sorts, whereby scientists could document and measure the effect of wolves on a variety of other species. Since their return, dozens of studies have been published purporting to show some effect of wolves on some other […]
