Yes,let's shit on the folks tasked with introducing a largely domesticated herd of bison to Yellowstone,so tourists can take pretty pictures.

BTW…anyone with half a brain in the game wouldn't have called them Buffalo.

Buffalo have never existed in North America. They are bison.

You're talking out your butthole again sheets. Did you even read the accompanying article? They don't give fuck about tourists they're hazing the critters back into the park at the behest of the livestock industry.

Before you post again on this subject, sunny jim.

Yes I read the "article".

…written by an " activist" who seems to

-only be published on cooterpunch and her own website

-have little to no understanding how chutes,pens and squeezes work or what they're for

-have written a little fairytale involving Buffalo and Indians….both of which live on the other side of the world,not Yellowstone.

Fwiw, ranchers are waaaay more into killing off the wolves than they are bison.

You sure? So what? Could be dozens of small local alternative publications that publish her.

Her point is that without the cattle industry running roughshod over the BLM/Park Service none of that would be necessary.

Too funny, sheets going all PC on us.

Fwiw, ranchers are waaaay more into killing off the wolves than they are bison.

The rancher strings barbed wire across the range, drills wells and bulldozes stock ponds everywhere, drives off the elk and antelope and bighorn sheep, poisons coyotes and prairie dogs, shoots eagle and bear and cougar on sight, supplants the native bluestem and grama grass with tumbleweed, cow shit, cheat grass, snakeweed, anthills, poverty weed, mud and dust and flies [HTML_REMOVED]#8211; and then leans back and smiles broadly at the Tee Vee cameras and tells us how much he loves the West. - Edward Abby

Well said.

I never meet people this dumb in the real world. Criticizing animal rights and environmental activists while defending arrogant fucks who think the natural world needs managing or the poor people who have to work in the tarsands.

Well said for a guy who actually said nothing.

The stark reality is that we collectively have fornicated ourselves into a population of 7 billion. If we want a chance in hell of "the natural world" continuing to exist,it will take various levels and means of management.

I'm sorry that you can't stomach what it takes to manage a herd of already highly managed and selectively bred (not Buffalo) bison.

As for the people in northern ab….they're still canadians like you and me. Forests burn….they always have. When the big one hits Van,would you rather I told you "I told you so", or do you want guys like me down to help,because that's the right thing to do??

Pull your head out of your ass and research the Yellowstone bison herd and fires in canadas boreal forest

PS. Zed is right,you kids do immediately belittle folks you don't necessarily agree with.

Cut it out,you might learn something and bring different perspective s to the conversation….unless that scares you and that's why you inhibit discussion

Man, you keep chirping about it why don't you, in your own words since you're such a smug know-it-all, enlighten us ignorant city types all about the nuances of America's bison issues.

Lets just say i know enough to not copy and paste dubious one sided stories and present them as gospel.

No footnotes,no peer review…..no dice

"And the joke is, when he woke his, body was covered in Coke fizz". Good song by a solid Canadian band.
