YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, GARDINER BASIN, MT: Comfrey Jacobs, a twenty-year old citizen concerned for wild bison, placed life, limb and freedom on the line by blocking the access road to Yellowstone National Park’s Stephens Creek bison trap in hopes of preventing more of America’s last wild, migratory bison — the most important bison populations in the world — from being shipped to slaughter.

To date, approximately 450 wild buffalo have been captured in Yellowstone National Park’s Stephens Creek bison trap, located in the Gardiner Basin. Most of the buffalo have been and will be shipped to slaughter, while some are going to government research facilities. To date, more than 200 bison have been shipped to slaughter and 250 more have been killed by hunters.

2. Double good for him.

If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have known this.

Civil Disobedience has had one of its desired effects. Maybe now they can discuss a better, more public way to deal with the bison.
