6/25/14 DOL Trespass
Montana Department of Livestock (MDOL) agents trespass on a local landowner's property. Landowner Ed Ryberg shows the MDOL agent a letter from Governor Bullock stating that it is illegal for the agency to come onto his property against his wishes. The agent ignores his request and trespasses, trying to move the buffalo. The buffalo have other ideas and will not move. The landowners again tell the agent to leave the property and, finally, he does without the buffalo. The MDOL agent never shows any proof of his supposed right to trespass.

Mad Science Gone Buffalo Wild
Special interests govern the management of our last wild Buffalo with your tax dollars. Here are two examples: removing Buffalo from private yards and a birth control study conducted by USDA's Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service. Birth control for the last wild Buffalo on Earth. Good idea?
