Stop Yellowstone’s Annual Bison Slaughter

Bison Daniel Mayer

Target: Dan Wenk, Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park

Goal: Put an end to Yellowstone’s annual bison slaughter of 600 to 900 animals.

Every year, around 600 to 900 terrified bison are rounded up and killed in Yellowstone National Park. The main reason for this culling is because of neighboring cattle ranchers.

Ranchers are nervous of a disease called brucellosis passing from the bison to the cows and then from the cows to humans. However, according to Stefanie Wilson, a lawyer for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the passing of the disease from bison to cow “is only theoretically possible based on a lab test.”

Killing hundreds of wild, innocent animals every year based on a theory is preposterous. In addition, the culling disrupts other wildlife because the operation is loud and somewhat cumbersome. Sign this petition and demand Yellowstone put an end to this terrible slaughter.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wenk,

Every year, 600 to 900 confused and scared bison are rounded up and killed in Yellowstone National Park. This is due to the concerns of neighboring cattle ranchers.

Cattle ranchers are nervous that a disease named brucellosis will pass from the bison to the cattle and then to humans. However, the passing of the disease “is only theoretically possible based on a lab test” according to Stefanie Wilson, a lawyer for the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

Killing hundreds of innocent animals every year based only on a theory is unnecessary and cruel. In addition, the culling is a loud and cumbersome process that causes chaos among the other wildlife living in Yellowstone. It is time this unnecessary practice be put to an end.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
