Bison Harassment, Wounded Calf

Bison Harassment, Wounded Calf

Video footage courtesy Buffalo Field Campaign.

Earthjustice continues to defend bison that wander outside Yellowstone National Park. A 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.
