_MG_0104 Public Enemy

_MG_0104 Public Enemy

He ran 1/4 mile and then turned to us. The 250 yard run across the prairie did not leave him winded just exercised!

He heard the sound of the camera and continued to us but he passed 20 feet away! Four inch tusks top and bottom hidden by the foam!!!

This is the number one enemy of the prairie. The tiller of soil, the environmental hazard, unafraid of visitors or rangers and we are concerned about the bison!

Time to address the real problems not waste money on the potential ones!

Sorry I forgot ~ Park Service Director, Donald Forgone, proposed a $200,000.00 reduction in the budget line item for "invasive species and animal control" I guess that was the accounting offset used to fund removal of the bison at an estimated 250,000.00 for six bulls.
