SAVE THE BUFFALO - IN YELLOWSTONE, COMMENT NOW

Yellowstone Seeks Public Comment on Yellowstone Bison Quarantine Program Environmental Assessment - Yellowstone National Park (
Date: January 13, 2016
Contact: Sandra Snell-Dobert, (307) 344-2015

The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Use of Quarantine to Identify Brucellosis-free Yellowstone Bison for Relocation Elsewhere.The purpose of a quarantine program for Yellowstone bison would be to establish or augment new conservation and cultural herds of plains bison;conserve a viable, wild population of Yellowstone bison;maintain the low risk of brucellosis transmission from bison to cattle;reduce the need for shipment of bison to meat processing facilities to limit population growth;and provide cultural and nutritional opportunities for Native Americans.

The EA analyzes three alternatives to evaluate a quarantine program for Yellowstone Bison at one or more new quarantine facilities, which could be located within Yellowstone National Park, on tribal lands, or elsewhere.
* Alternative 1 is no action. Bison operations would continue as they currently are with no quarantine of bison.
* Alternative 2 includes conducting a quarantine program within Yellowstone National Park.
* Alternative 3 includes conducting a quarantine program on the Fort Peck Reservation and is the NPS preferred alternative.

The NPS is inviting public comment and engagement on the EA pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The EA can be found online at www.parkplanning.nps.gov/BisonQuarantine. To request a hard copy of the EA, call 307-344-2015.


Respondents are encouraged to submit their comments online through the Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website at www.parkplanning.nps.gov/BisonQuarantine. Comments may also be hand-delivered to the park administration building, or mailed to: Superintendent, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 82190. Comments will not be accepted by fax, e-mail, or in any manner other than those specified above. Bulk comments submitted in any format on behalf of others will not be accepted. The deadline to submit comments is midnight MDT February 15, 2016.

Once comments are analyzed, a decision on whether to implement the plan will be made by the Regional Director of the Intermountain Region of the NPS. If approved in time, the NPS may implement a quarantine program during the 2016 bison management operations period.

MY COMMENTS:

SAVE THE BUFFALO....Yellowstone National Park, to - cull - KILL, over 1,000 wild buffalo (bison) this winter - mostly: CALVES and FEMALES - to cut the reproductive rate, and to reduce the migration to Montana. Over 5,000 roamed the Park this summer - a far cry LESS that the millions that used to roam the West, killed like clay targets, for sport, by Western visitors and cowboys.

The buffalo which provided Native Americans with food, shelter and clothing and were very important in their survival, as the buffalo were killed, thousands of Native Americans also died. The buffalo roamed all over the West, now they barely exist and to KILL - 1,000 is wrong. These buffalo should be distributed to National Parks all over the country, so that even more people can see and enjoy them.

To save the buffalo of Yellowstone contact:
Supt Dan Wenk, (307) 344 - 7381....PO Box 168, Yellowstone, WY 82190 - 7381
National Park HQ....(202) 208 - 6843

The Buffalo should be given - FREE - to Native American tribes that want them for their reservations - transportation free...and sent to Native American tribes in North Dakota and South Dakota.

To save the buffalo of Yellowstone contact:
Supt Dan Wenk, (307) 344 - 7381....PO Box 168, Yellowstone, WY 82190 - 7381
National Park HQ....(202) 208 - 6843
Contact the Yellowstone National Park and tell them not to KILL Buffalo.

NRA - SUPPORTS US TERRORISM....MILITARY ASSAULT WEAPONS KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE

NRA...Supports US Terrorism...by opposing common sense gun control legislation...Military assault weapons - KILL...children, mothers, fathers, grand parents, cousins, aunts and uncles, neighbors and friends....
CPL holders need more training !!!

NRA = GUN NUTS, FOOLS, PAID POLITICIANS - STAND UP TO THEM....

Do you think the people of Newtown, Ct, are rushing to buy guns and assault weapons, to protect themselves !!!! - from another school, movie theater public gun massacre ???...
??

The NRA, Fox News (?), misguided gun nuts and others are trying to make us feel guilty for talking about gun laws and assault weapon bans, in the wake of the child massacre in Newtown.

NRA and their gun nut, fools and paid politicians members are trying to downplay another gun massacre, make us think - its about a single deranged shooter - and not the insane and wrong headed 'gun culture' that is engrained in the US culture. Our wrong belief that people kill people, not guns !!! And that more guns in the hands of more people will solve the problem.

There automatic response to our very prevalent - gun massacres - is more guns, less laws...'Don't take our guns away' - because then only criminals will have guns'. Not acknowledging that the availability of guns - is how criminals get guns ( from home invasions, B&E of autos, etc)

Military assault weapons (AR15 /16s - AK 47s - Uzis - Mac10s - etc ) are not guns. They are military weapons designed to kill a large amount of people in the least amount of time. High capacity magazines allow you to have all of the ammunition you will need without reloading as often as needed with smaller magazines.

Our Founding Fathers (1781 - 231 years ago) and our Constitution could not have imagined these personal weapons of mass destruction and death.
The Fathers were trying to establish the right of citizens to be able to protect themselves, their families, homes and towns from the English, French, and 'savage' Native Americans, before the establishment of local police departments, state police, FBI and other law enforcement agencies that have been created to fill the need for public safety - common sense guns laws (except) for home protection should be discussed and reevaluated to make them stronger and more effective.

We need an immediate Assault Weapons / High Capacity Magazine Ban - The President, Congress, Governors and State Legislators must all stand up pass similar legislation - Stand Up against the NRA. We also need to review all gun laws to strengthen them and make them more effective.

We need and END to 'Open Carry Gun Laws' in Michigan and in every state in the Country, and more and improved training for those 'legitimate' citizens who want and have 'concealed weapons permits'....Everyone who carries a gun - should know how and when to properly use the weapon and a clear understanding of the rights and responsibilities of having a gun, in public.

Michigan Governor Snyder must Stand Up to the Tea Party / right wing Republicans and the NRA and VETO - the recently passed gun bill, that would allow gun to be brought into schools, stadiums, hospitals, and have a real review of the Michigan 'Open Carry Law' and 'CPL Law' - to ban 'OC' and to make mandatory more training for CPL carriers.

I am a retired Detroit Police Sergeant - I want the massacres of innocents to be stopped - and the availability of military style weapons to end.

PS...US Senator Ted Cruz, a sad example of the miserable quality of Republican Presidential candidates, wants to "carpet bomb" ISIS...without regard to civilian casualties, which would provoke any country or people to seek revenge. Republicans keep calling President Obama "weak / failed leader" and that is wrong and damages America, around the world. Republicans hope that if they say it enough, people will believe it and it has its own self fulling impact, on low intelligent people, who may believe what they hear from public leaders.

Iraq does not want 'American boots on the ground' and to force this on them would endanger our troops...Saudi Arabia and 34 Arab countries (many Sunni) have formed a coalition against ISIS / ISIL / Dash...which I have advocated for - it should be the Arab countries, who must fight the fight against them - not American / European troops, who are seen as 'invaders' - hopefully a strong intelligent and honorable Republican Presidential candidate will emerge and restore the Party to mainstream and not the far right extreme.

MITCH McCONNELL, US SENATOR - SHAMES 911 FIRST RESPONDERS

US Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Shames 911 Responders - America....

McConnell pulled a Bill to renew health benefits for 911 First Responders from Senate consideration because he didn't get the support for oil companies in his state. 911 First Responders are dying every day and others are in need of immediate health care, but McConnell is playing politics with the renewal of a bill to give 911 First Responders their needed health coverage...Shame shame shame on him and his State of Kentucky for electing this @#$##%%.

The bill, called the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, would reauthorize an expiring health care program for 9/11 first responders permanently, while at the same time reauthorize a victims compensation fund for five years, aides say.
The bill has been spearheaded by a bipartisan group from the New York congressional delegation, which has said renewing the programs is "a real life or death issue."
