If you Liberals read the constitution once in awhile you would stop being such pussies. I have the right to shoot missiles at planes that fly over my own deeded air space.

/sorry guys that was lame ...just trying to fit into the new America. :(

It's a 4XX. You're going to have to eat a few more cases of Krispy Kremes and wash 'em down with some cheez fries.

I knew this old fart who lived right on the boundary of Yellowstone, and he hated the bison. It didn't help matters that a guy about half a mile away fed the elk and bison in the winter, until the state made him stop. Anyway, the bison kept getting into this guy's yard and he kept threatening to shoot them. I forget how he got caught, but when the police showed up at his house, they asked him if they could look in his garage, and they found the bison's head in the garage--all properly bloody and gross.

Nothing happened to him. He'd lived there his whole life, had family all over the place, was pretty old, and they just kind of let it slide.

Indeed.

Bill Hoppe, whose family has ranched next to Yellowstone National Park for six generations, said the wild bison that roam outside of the park are "dangerous, destructive and diseased." He noted that in Gardiner, they've installed metal pens at school bus stops to protect children from the wild bison.

Gardiner--the school is across the street.

He should be at least allowed to take the tongue and liver, but leave the rest to go on its way.

"Keizer_Ghidorah: Well, if the wolves hadn't all been eradicated, they would have kept the numbers of the bison in check as well as culled the diseased ones, leaving the rest of the population healthy. But man, in his infinite wisdom, comes in and farks everything up then wonders why everything is going bonkers.'

There's plenty of wolves. East coast environmentalists, in all their infinite wisdom, decided to come out west and fark everything up then wonder why there's unintended consequences.

We're smart, yes, but we seem to have given up our common sense and foresight for it. I can enjoy the products of humanity while I berate the stupid among it for their failure.

For you, the day Bison graced your deeded property was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

I probably share more of your beliefs than you think. I was born and raised in one of the most beautiful places in the country and hate the thought of anything bad happening to it. That being said, people who get up on their high horses and denigrate the folks who make their living from the land while sitting in some climate controlled apartment on the other side of the country, typing on a machine that can't exist without raping the hell out of the planet really chap my hide. A little less self-righteousness and a little more understanding will take you far.

Or you could build a fence.

I find it interesting that this fool's family has ranched next to Yellowstone for "six generations" and only just now has the wildlife suddenly become an issue. While buffalo have been scarce before now, it's not like they were extinct and miraculously reappeared last week. No: This douche just wants a free license to kill bison which is more expensive per pound than beef, and he's probably got a buyer already lined up.

Never attribute to douchebaggery that which is adequately explained by greed.

He's an outfitter and he runs cattle, which I figured before I checked. Every blade of grass that goes to a bison instead of a cow is wasted.

And bless his heart, I know where he lives. Right on, and I mean right ON the park boundary. So he likes all the benefits he gets from living next to one of most famous ecosystems in the world (hunters pay good money to get up in this area), but those bison are just much too wild for him.

About time for an upgrade. 1080p video chokes and I'm constantly scrounging for disk space. It has been a good soldier though. All these years and not a single failure. Thinkpads rule.

Ah, yep. And a fence would just ruin the scenic view tourists pay for, no doubt.
