Buffalo Calving Season Has Begun!

https://org.salsalabs.com/o/2426/images/BabyandMom_GC_BFCseay2013.jpg

From Buffalo Field Campaign’s weekly newsletter:

“Late last week BFC patrols saw the first buffalo calf of the season! Mom and calf appeared to be doing fine, and were spotted along the Madison River in the Hebgen Basin, west of Yellowstone National Park. The next generation of wild buffalo is coming! While snow still covers a lot of ground, spring has truly arrived to the Hebgen Basin. Osprey, blue birds, Sandhill cranes and pelicans have returned, and the first sign of grizzly bears has been spotted. A couple hundred buffalo have been migrating along the Madison River toward their calving grounds on the Horse Butte Peninsula. Save for the dangers of having to cross the highways, all has been blessedly quiet on the western front.”

 

 

Write & Call With Support for the Buffalo!

The story below is from Buffalo Field Campaign’s latest field update on April 3, 2014.  Please help support the buffalo by writing and calling!

* Gardiner: Write & Call With Support for the Buffalo Today!

BFC strongly encourages bison advocates who live in the Gardiner Basin, or anywhere really, to publicly celebrate wild buffalo roaming here. Unfortunately, the anti-buffalo contingent, while small in number, is loud in voice. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is receiving negative calls, and bison advocates need to make it known to the media and government that we are celebrating the presence of wild buffalo in the Gardiner Basin! It is *critical* that support for the buffalo in the Gardiner Basin is heard by decision-makers!

We can’t let the buffalo be misrepresented by the few folks who hate and fear them!

Please call today:
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 3 Office:  Phone: (406) 994-4042
Montana Governor Steve Bullock:  406-444-3111
Montana Department of Livestock:  406-444-0782

Please also submit Letters to the Editor to the following papers:
Bozeman Daily Chronicle
Billings Gazette
Helena Independent Record
Livingston Enterprise

To show our appreciation for helping wild buffalo, if your LTE is published we will send you a free BFC t-shirt or calendar. Send us the link to your buffalo-friendly letter when published, your gift preference, tee shirt size, and mailing address. Thank you!
