Stop the brutal slaughter of wild bison !

Dear Friends,

If our attorneys don't win in court, hundreds of wild bison will be brutally hazed, captured and slaughtered this winter when they stray from the safety of Yellowstone National Park in search of food. Help us win in court to protect these iconic animals with an urgent gift today: 
http://action.earthjustice.org/site/R?i=xebLn4Et5ir6rETPaGvMlg In past years, thousands of bison who wandered outside Yellowstone National Park to find food after harsh winters were met with a brutal onslaught of helicopters and four-wheelers. These terrified animals were violently corralled and sent to slaughter. Ranchers fear that bison could spread brucellosis to their cattle, but no transmission of this disease has ever been documented from bison to cattle in the wild. A recent decision to spare these Yellowstone bison from slaughter is now being challenged in court by local ranchers. And we need your support today to fight back: http://action.earthjustice.org/site/R?i=m24Hyin_Q50p0qniSXpofQ Please make an emergency gift to help us protect these wild bison before the winter conditions get too harsh: http://action.earthjustice.org/site/R?i=g2Mve5CaGtFDOCbmTyCugQ Like other wild animals, these bison should be allowed to occupy suitable habitat within areas of Montana adjacent to Yellowstone Park without brutal and deadly harassment. To be absolutely clear, if Earthjustice doesn't win in court, hundreds of our country's last remaining wild bison could soon be brutally killed. We need to win. And these bison need your support now more than ever. Give now to help protect some of our last remaining wild American bison from unnecessary and brutal hazing, capture, and slaughter: http://action.earthjustice.org/site/R?i=krkVOTFg3z6v8cfIfAg3tw With your support, Earthjustice will continue to fight tooth and nail to protect this and other wild animals. Thank you, Trip Van Noppen President, Earthjustice http://action.earthjustice.org/site/R?i=XAeqcILcw16YUsQyDV5RRg *********************************** (c) 2011 Earthjustice 50 California Street, Suite 500, San Francisco, CA 94111 415-217-2000 info@earthjustice.org ***********************************
