Independent non profit news and commentary site Truthout.org published my essay on my experiences and what I discovered while working on my Yellowstone buffalo story. In case you missed it. http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/38145-montana-s-beef-with-buffalo-and-yellowstone-s-buffalo-battle
This week in a sweeping gesture, the buffalo became the first national mammal of the United States. But it is just that, a gesture. For the sad truth for those who care to look beyond the glaze of regurgitated headlines and political half truths is that the American buffalo is persecuted still. In Yellowstone, the worlds first national park, America's last wild buffalo succumb to an axe wielded by the state of Montana to protect cowboys and their cows.
