Just a brief addendum to our recent blog on the killing of wild Bison in Montana with the help of the US Park Service and others. A book on this issue was recently authored by Dan Brister with a foreward by Doug Peacock, published by WestWinds Press, titled “In the Presence of Buffalo”.
Dan Brister has been on the front lines of this ongoing travesty since 1997 and this book is a must read for anyone who cares about wildlife, Yellowstone bison, Yellowstone National Park policy or the welfare of animals in general. Warning, it will make you angry. This is a small book of only 92 pages but is succinctly well-written and documented, neatly tying the history of the massive bison herds destruction to the ongoing ignoring of Native American treaty rights regarding bison and of course the current “management” debacle. Available through Amazon or the Buffalo Field Campaign’s website (order from them, they need our help at www.BuffaloFieldCampaign.org) Read it and pass it on…..send a copy or 2 to your Senator or Congress person as well.
