aarrrggghhh,.

Those that claim they love animals usually don't know how to.........and they usually denigrate those of us that truly DO know how to.

And you can read all you want between those lines!!!!!

So sad. The folks that were fined should instead have instead been made to put the calf down as a result of their stupidity. That would have made a bigger impact. These are things I learned as a child, when a baby bird falls from it's nest, let it be. Nature takes care of it's own. It is called natural selection.

JMHO, but the rangers could have taken it in and nursed/raised it until it was old enough and could fend for itself. Were they ignorant of the fact that the herd would reject it and just let it die? Doesn't speak too well for the rangers. You expect ignorance from the tourists, but not the rangers.

Rangers did what they had to once it has been captive and raised and weened, it could not have been able to fend for itself in the wild. It would have been put in a zoo setting or put down. Sad.....

There are just too many people that have no clue about nature.
They are same people that think milk and eggs come from the grocery store and do not have a clue. Farmers just drive around on tractors .........right???

Would rather seen it given to a rancher that raises bison(which are plentiful in that area) or at least in a zoo. Better than letting it die. JMO

Bison are not allowed out of the park and ranchers don't want them out! Once they step out of the park and head towards ranches they are euthanized. There is a holding pen you can see in Gardiner just for that reason. The bison carry disease that affects domestic cattle.

Understand that & I agree, but by Federal Law their hands are tied.
