Native herds, bring them home

Imagine a time when a thunderous, rolling hymn was not that of bustling vehicles, cities, or airplanes. The booming roll heard across the plains of the United States was that of over 20 million bison that grazed freely. Bison have miraculously squeezed past a large brush painted with the letters: E X T I N C T.

In Montana, they continue to roam freely in certain areas and numbers are at a steady and balanced rate. Their ‘safe haven’ continues to be that of Yellowstone National Park in southwestern Montana and northern Wyoming.  The rolling hills and plains of the Charles M. Russell (CMR) National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Montana once held thousands of natural herds and is prime territory for bison, and the wild kind, not those raised by farmers and ranchers to make a profit on or benefit from. These rancher’s bison ranges are keeping these wild beasts (weighing anywhere from 1,000-2,500 pounds) in solitary confinement behind high fences and alike environments.

I highly recommend you reading what professionals, Tom France and Kit Fischer of the National Wildlife Federation have to say about bison in the CMR range.
