Exclusive Footage of Injured Bison Calf Courtesy of Buffalo Field Campaign

Earthjustice continues to defend bison that wander outside Yellowstone National Park. A new video clip shows a baby bison with a broken leg fleeing helicopters and mounted riders. The tragic scene took place in May 2009 on Horse Butte peninsula, as federal and state agents drove park buffalo off spring pastures because of perceived conflict with livestock.

Earthjustice is in court to secure the bison's right to these grasslands where they historically lived.

This short video shows one of the migratory paths that Yellowstone bison take out of the park's western boundaries into the Gallatin National Forest. They end their journey at lower elevation at the Horse Butte peninsula. It is here the first grasses of spring grow and the bison have their calves.

The green and yellow lines mark the Yellowstone National Park and the Gallatin National Forest boundaries, respectively.
