Support the Right Choice for Buffalo! Support "Wild Buffalo Trust Alternative D"
Dear Friends of the Buffalo,
There is just one week left to submit your comments to Yellowstone National Park, convincing them to abandon their ill-conceived and harmful plan to vaccinate wild buffalo. Comments must be received by Friday, September 24, 2010, 12:00 MST. Encourage Yellowstone to make the right choice for wild buffalo by choosing "Wild Buffalo Trust Alternative D." Take action now or review new information below.

WILD BUFFALO TRUST ALTERNATIVE D
Rather than shooting wild buffalo with an ineffective, costly, harmful, intrusive, and culturally unacceptable brucellosis vaccine, Yellowstone National Park should, instead, choose an alternative to buy out cattle in the buffalo's range.
Buffalo Field Campaign and our strong allies at Western Watersheds Project have developed just such an alternative: "Wild Buffalo Trust Alternative D." This alternative is a common-sense approach that respects the wild integrity of Yellowstone's bison - America's last wild population - and effectively addresses brucellosis risk management by removing potential host cattle from the American bison's native range.
Read more about "Wild Buffalo Trust Alternative D" in this joint letter BFC & WWP recently sent to key Members of Congress, and the leaderships of non-government organizations from indigenous, conservation, sportsmen and animal rights communities.
Please TAKE ACTION NOW for the last wild buffalo!
More information including helpful talking points, BFC & WWP official comments, news articles and more can be found here.
Please help spread the word to save these herds! Share this alert with everyone you know - on Facebook, Linkedin, other email lists, blogs, etc. - and encourage everyone who cares about wild buffalo to send in comments supporting "Wild Buffalo Trust Alternative D." Thank you!
And many heartfelt thanks to Western Watersheds Project for their powerful commitment to America's last wild buffalo! It is an honor to work with you in their defense.
