Buffalo Migration Routes

Yellowstone National Park Buffalo Migration Route
Yellowstone National Park is the world's first national park. Yellowstone covers 2.2 million acres and has an average elevation of 7,300 feet (2300m). Because of the high Yellowstone plateau winters are known to be harsh. Buffalo and Elk for thousands of years have migrated to the lower elevation valleys surrounding the park. The red arrows show the migration of the buffalo. Yellowstone has over 100,000. Elk carry brucellosis and migrate outside the park too. Why aren't the agencies concerned with
the elk infecting cattle?
Please see FAQ-
What about the elk infected
with brucellosis?
Greater Yellowston Ecosystem
including National Forest Lands

The National Forest Lands (in green) that surround Yellowstone National Park play an intergral role in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosytem. National Forest lands are public lands dedicated to the preservation of wildlife. Unfortunately cattle are given priority on the National Forest lands surrounding Yellowstone. Lets return the National Forest back to the wildlife and let the buffalo roam.
Please see FAQ-
How many cattle graze within the range of the Yellowstone buffalo?

Horse Butte Peninsula
horse butte peninsula

The Horse Butte Peninsula extends into Hebgen Lake just west of Yellowstone National Park. Horse Butte is a favorite spring calving grounds for the Yellowstone Bison. The capture facility is where the green dot is located. The Horse Butte peninsula should be protected as wildlife habitat. There are no cattle in the West Yellowstone area until June 1st. So why are they slaughtering the Yellowstone buffalo?

capture facilities
