Stop Slaughter of Bison in Grand Canyon National Park

Target: Michael T. Reynolds, Acting Director of the U.S. National Park Service (NPS)

Goal: Do not use the cruel method of culling to reduce the Grand Canyon National Park’s bison population.

The National Park Service is not only allowing hundreds of North Rim bison to be killed in Grand Canyon National Park, but is also asking for volunteers to participate in this inhumane act. Officials in the park have been struggling to keep the bison population under control, and the solution the NPS has chosen is culling, or the reduction of a population of wild animals through selective slaughter. In this case, this would mean the cruel extermination of one to two thirds of the current bison population.

Although bison overpopulation does present a genuine threat to other wildlife in the park, there many other humane, non-lethal ways of addressing the problem that are just as effective. These methods include relocating some of the animals, and the use of immunocontraception (a vaccine that affects an animal’s immune system and acts as birth control). There is no need to harm these innocent animals. Sign below to demand that these buffalo be saved and other cruelty-free methods used to reduce their population.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Reynolds,

The brutal slaughter of North Rim bison in Grand Canyon National Park is cruel and unnecessary. These innocent animals are iconic symbols of our country and do not deserve to be killed by volunteer culling squads.

While overpopulation is a legitimate problem, there are humane, safe, and non-lethal ways of addressing this issue, such as relocation and immunocontraception. I urge you to employ these methods and stop the unnecessary and inhumane killing of North Rim bison.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
