Letters to the Editor
National Newpapers | Montana Newpapers | All Montana News Outlets | Tribal Papers | Radio
Write a Letter to the Editor Now!

Most of the time, articles about the buffalo slaughter end up in hard-to-find sections of the newspaper, if at all, meaning the buffalo’s story goes generally untold to the public.

One sure-fire way to combat this is to write Letters to the Editor so they know the seriousness and importance of this issue.

The editorial section is the most widely-read section of newspapers, and even local papers can reach thousands of readers. Listed below are six newspapers - national and Montana media - who must hear from each and every one of us. But don’t stop there! Your local paper, or any publication that you read or subscribe to should hear from you about this issue. The more people there are who know about what’s happening to the buffalo, the more people there will be coming to their defense!

Please write to them about what is happening to the buffalo, and urge them to cover the issue more thoroughly so more attention is drawn to the needless suffering of these unique and majestic animals.

If you’ve seen articles printed, write a letter in response. Or, you can write a response to the articles listed on this website, a general letter about the issue, or be more specific by writing about House Resolution 3446, or the proposed buffalo hunt, or all of the above.

Contact information for the newspapers is listed below.

NOTE: Most papers have specific criteria to follow in order to print your letters. Please be sure to follow these paper-specific guidelines. Also, make a follow-up phone call to the editor of the paper(s) you write to, as this will help get your letter printed. Campaigns have been won before using this medium - no better time than today to send your Letter to the Editor!
If your letter is printed please send a copy to bfc-media"at"wildrockies.org or to Buffalo Field Campaign, P.O. Box 957, W. Yellowstone, MT, 59758.
