Emergency: Proposed Extermination of Montana bison

Are bison wildlife or vermin? In Montana, it's up for debate.

Two bills amounting to nothing less than an extermination campaign against bison are making their way through the Montana state legislature. If these bills pass, it could be disastrous to our efforts to return bison to their historic habitat. Two more anti-bison bills are on their way this week, and up to six more are being drafted. We're pulling out all the stops to defeat these bills and we need your help. Please donate today to save bison and other imperiled wildlife. Among their deadly provisions, these bills:

Would prohibit reintroduction of wild bison into Montana. This ban would include future reintroductions at the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, the site of last year’s historic return of genetically pure bison to the Great Plains after more than a century; Would establish a year-round hunting season for bison, with virtually no limitations; Would authorize private landowners to shoot on sight any bison that wandered onto their property;
Would order state officials to exterminate or move any wild bison that migrate into Montana. It's been nearly a year since the historic return of 61 genetically pure Yellowstone bison to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, marking the first reintroduction of Yellowstone bison to the Great Plains. As some of the only remaining genetically pure bison, and the only continuously wild herd in the country, Yellowstone bison are essential to the species' recovery.

Now, these Montana bills have the potential to end future bison success stories, such as the planned reintroduction of Yellowstone bison to the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana. And they're an insult to Native American tribes who have worked hard to return wild bison to their rightful place in the American landscape. Working Overtime to Protect and Restore Bison . Defenders of Wildlife is leading efforts in Montana and in Washington, DC to give bison, wolves and endangered wildlife the crucial protection they need to recover.

In the Northern Rockies, our field representatives are working directly with forward-looking state officials to speak up for responsible wildlife management policies. Defenders is working alongside tribal bison managers and councils to restore wild bison to tribal lands, as well as organizing the pro-bison citizens of Montana and encouraging them to speak out on behalf of bison, wolves and other Montana wildlife.Please help us continue this important work in defense of Montana's bison and endangered wildlife across the country.

Emergency: Devastating Bills Declare War on Montana Bison

Help stave off this cruel assault on bison recovery. This is a critical moment for bison, these bills have the potential to end future bison success stories. Please donate today to support our efforts to protect America's iconic wild creatures. It’s the latest threat to wild bison conservation. All we have worked for could be severely compromised if a batch of bad bison bills passes through Montana’s state legislature. Some of Montana’s most extreme anti-wildlife legislators are attempting to make restoration of wild bison to the Great Plains nearly impossible. We are pulling out all the stops to defeat these anti-bison attacks. Please help with an emergency donation to support our wild bison restoration efforts – and save other wildlife in danger.

A Massive Assault on Bison

The worst of the bills, SB 143, would:

Order Montana officials to "immediately" kill or remove all wild bison migrating into Montana;
Prohibit wild bison relocation anywhere in Montana except to the National Bison Range - where wild bison are already located;
Establish a bison hunt "statewide and at any time of the year;" and
Allow landowners to shoot wild bison on private land.
To add insult to injury:

SB 256 would make Montana’s wildlife agency liable for any property damage from wild bison, a precedent meant to financially prohibit bison restoration;
SB 341 would require Montana’s wildlife agency to navigate a massive list of additional hurdles prior to relocation of any wildlife species and prohibit relocation if the species could impact livestock grazing, clearly intended to prevent bison relocation; and HB 396 would attempt to give county commissioners veto power over bison restoration within their counties - even on tribal lands and our federal public lands.

Our Plan for Bison

Defenders of Wildlife’s Rockies and Plains team is working overtime to turn back this cruel assault on bison recovery. We’re working with a diverse coalition of tribes and conservation organizations to testify against these bills and mobilize opposition; we’re getting word out to the media to bring attention to these bills; and we’re organizing Montanans to show up at the Montana capitol, make phone calls and send emails to exert grassroots pressure on legislators and the governor. Our efforts are beginning to pay off. Three of the eight anti-bison bills are now dead. But five more remain a threat to wild bison in Montana -- and we need your help more than ever to continue this critical work. Last year, we helped relocate 61 pure wild bison from Yellowstone National Park to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. It was the start of an historic effort to restore Yellowstone bison to key places in the Great Plains – an effort that is now in jeopardy, unless we can turn back this latest assault. Please help today!

BASIC FACTS ABOUT BISON
Bison are considered a keystone species: they once roamed the continent in great herds, and their grazing pressure helped shape the ecology of the Great Plains.

Bison mainly eat grasses and sedges.
Population
Did You Know?

The trails carved by animals like bison and deer in their seasonal migrations formed some of the earliest traceable paths into the American wildnerness, and were followed by Native Americans, explorers and pioneers. Historically, bison numbered an estimated 20-30 million. Unregulated shooting of bison, which culminated in mass slaughters during the 1870s, reduced the population to 1,091 in 1889. Today, approximately 500,000 bison live across North America. Most are not pure bison but rather have been cross-bred with cattle in the past and are raised as livestock on ranches. Fewer than 30,000 bison are in conservation herds, and fewer than 5,000 are free-ranging and disease-free.

Range

Bison once roamed across much of North America. Today bison are ecologically extinct throughout most of their historic range, except for a few national parks and other small wildlife areas. Yellowstone National Park has the largest population of free-roaming plains bison (about 4,000), and Wood Buffalo National Park has the largest population of free-roaming wood bison (about 10,000).

Behavior

A bison's thick fur offers great protection against the harsh elements of the American plains. Their winter coat is so thick and well insulated that snow can cover their backs without melting. Bison move continuously as they eat so that they rarely overgraze an area. They historically roamed great distances. The females, or cows, lead family groups. Bulls remain solitary or in small groups for most of the year, but rejoin the group during mating season. Bison often rub, roll and wallow. Wallowing creates a saucer-like depression called a wallow. This was once a common feature of the plains; usually these wallows are dust bowls without any vegetation. In winter, bison can dig through deep snow with their heads to reach the vegetation below. Bison have poor eyesight, but have acute hearing and an excellent sense of smell. They can reach speeds of up to 35 mph.

Reproduction
Mating Season: June-September, peak activity in July-August.
Gestation: 270-285 days. Calf is born April-May.
Litter size: 1 calf.

Montana Anti-Bison Legislation Defeated!
Jonathan Proctor | Posted on 15 May 2013 | Tags: Bison, Great Plains, Montana, state legislature

Share on Facebook+1Pin it on PinterestSubmit to redditSubmit to StumbleUponShare on Twitter
Bison, (c) Aaron Huey / National Geographic Stock
Jonathan Proctor, Northern Rockies Representative
I have some great news from Montana: All 14 bad bison bills in the Montana Legislature were defeated!
Legislators opposed to the recent progress on wild bison restoration in Montana (including the restoration of 61 wild Yellowstone bison to Fort Peck Reservation and the increase in tolerance for roaming bison around Yellowstone) made 14 separate attempts this year to legislate wild bison out of existence in the state. And 14 times they were defeated.
Some of the legislation never made it to committee. Some bills did, but then died in committee. Still others made it through committees and one or both chambers, but not through the appropriations process. Three, however, passed through both houses and were sent to Montana Gov. Steve Bullock. If even one had become law, it would have seriously harmed or even ended our bison restoration work.
But thanks to you and many others who contacted the Governor in support of wild bison, he vetoed all three bills that made it to his desk. He vetoed the first one on April 22, and the final two were vetoed just last week. Please take the time to thank him right now with a quick email, a tweet or a post on his Facebook page.
Bison in Yellowstone

You may recall these bills from my previous blogs. The bills varied in specifics but all were meant to stop wild bison restoration. One would have allowed county commissioners to veto bison restoration anywhere in their counties, even on federal land or tribal land. Another would have allowed landowners to shoot all bison that step on private property as they wander out of Yellowstone National Park. Another would have forced state officials to remove or kill all bison that cross the imaginary Yellowstone boundary. Yet another would have banned bison restoration altogether.
Now, all 14 bills are just bad memories.
Defenders worked tirelessly with our tribal and conservation allies – and with you, our members – to make this happen. My favorite part was working with several tribes to organize and attend a rally they held inside the capitol building rotunda. The event included a drumming circle that reverberated throughout the building and the capitol’s first-ever pipe ceremony. I also thought the full page ad that several tribes placed in many Montana newspapers was very effective. It generated a lot of calls, and a copy was placed on every legislator’s desk just as several of the most damaging bills were coming up for major committee votes.
Although having to spend time fighting bad bills seems like a waste of time and money, it may prove beneficial in the long run for wild bison restoration. Bison supporters – tribes, hunters and conservationists – are working together now on bison conservation more than ever, and many tribes seem more eager to restore wild bison. More Montanans have heard about this issue as a result and are overwhelmingly on the side of wild bison.
Thomas Christian, member of the Fork Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribal Council, emceed the rally in Helena.

Thank you to everyone who worked together to defeat these bills, especially representatives of the Assiniboine, Gros Ventre, Sioux, Salish, Kootenai, Nez Perce, Crow and Blackfeet Tribes; the Native American Caucus; tribal organizations like Montana-Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council and InterTribal Buffalo Council; hunting organizations like Gallatin Wildlife Association; lobbyists Ben Lamb and Jake Troyer; and conservation organizations including World Wildlife Fund, Buffalo Field Campaign, and National Wildlife Federation.
And thank you to our Montana members who contacted our state legislators, and all Defenders’ members for the support you’ve provided that makes outcomes like these possible. We can all breathe a sigh of relief (for now) and celebrate, knowing that bison still have a bright future in Montana. The legislature won’t meet again until 2015, and by then we hope even more Montanans will support the return of wild bison.
