Man Protests Bison Slaughter by Chaining Himself to Cement Drum

Purstock

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Park rangers have arrested a man who chained himself to a cement-filled drum to protest the slaughter of bison migrating from Yellowstone National Park. Twenty-year-old Comfrey Jacobs was arrested Thursday morning and charged with disorderly conduct, entering a closed area around the park’s bison capture facility and interfering with government operations. Jacobs chained himself to the 50-gallon drum and blocked the road to the Stephens Creek corrals near the park border. The Buffalo Field Campaign advocacy group says Jacobs was attempting to stop the shipment of bison to slaughter. Park officials looking to reduce the bison population in Yellowstone hold the animals in the corrals. Spokesman Al Nash says 318 bison have been transferred this winter, including roughly 60 animals to an experimental contraception program and the rest to slaughter.
