by George Cadman
George Cadman of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.1 fm interviews Stephanie Seay of the Buffalo Field Campaign about the Montana state and the federal govt. practice of capturing wild buffalo on public lands and slaughtering them or transporting them hundreds of miles. In the last two weeks in Montana state and federal authorities planned to slaughter 300 wild buffalo, including calves and their mothers. It was stopped by the BFC and public outcry, but this is not the first time this has happened. In the last 7 years the government has trucked 2,000 buffalo to slaughter, 1,000 last year alone.

George Cadman of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.1 fm interviews Stephanie Seay, media coordinator of the Buffalo Field Campaign about the Montana state and the federal govt. practice of capturing wild buffalo on public lands and slaughtering them or transporting them hundreds of miles in trucks or trains. In Montana in the last two weeks state and federal authorities planned to slaughter 300 wild buffalo, including calves and their mothers. It was stopped by the BFC and public outcry, but this is not the first time this has happened. In the last 7 years the government has trucked 2,000 wild buffalo to slaughter, 1,000 last year alone. Stephanie also talks about the cattle industry, the power they hold in Montana and how they influence decision making on the treatment of wild buffalo, the huge subsidies that the industry receives, and their access to public lands. And she discusses what concerned citizens can do to help defend the last remaining wild buffalo in North America.

Hey dorks, they are Bison, not Buffalo. Buffalo only live in Africa, you are talking about the North American Bison. You fanatics get so blinded by your passions that you don't even know what you are trying to save:
