      I have also included an attached letter if you would like to
      participate (At very bottom of e-mail).

      It has all information as to where you should fax or e-mail your
      complaints... The phone boxes are full for the Yellowstone
      supertindent and
      her colleagues, and CUT's line has been disconnected. I have found
      CUT's corporate headquarters, and they have a new name...

      If you do or do not want to participate in this, please forward this
      e-mail with it's attachment to your friends anyway. Perhaps they
      may would.

      Thank you for considering this...

      In love & light,
      Angel Muehlenkamp

      Pets & Animals in Distress Action Alert!

      Your Help Is Needed to Save Yellowstone's Bison

      National Call-in Day, February 2

      Over the past three weeks, the National Park Service (NPS) has
      captured
      672 bison - more than one-tenth of Yellowstone's entire bison
      population -
      near the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park (YNP). All
      were
      sent to slaughter in violation of the government's own bison
      management
      plan except for 87 calves who have become test subjects in an
      ill-conceived experiment. The park's bison trap is empty now, but
      the NPS
      could restart trapping operations at any time. The killing is
      ostensibly
      to prevent the transmission of the bacteria, Brucella abortus, to
      cattle
      outside the park, and was done to protect less than 200 cows owned
      by the
      Church Universal and Triumphant (CUT).

      CUT is a controversial religious sect with headquarters on land
      adjacent
      to Yellowstone National Park. In 1999, the group received 13 million
      federal dollars as part of a land deal intended to provide the
      bison and
      other wildlife access to important winter range on CUT lands. After
      seven
      years, not a single bison has been allowed to access that winter
      habitat,
      as the group continues to graze a small herd of cattle on its land.

      The bison killing is enormously controversial because the risk of
      bacteria
      transmission is exceedingly remote. Indeed, there has never been a
      confirmed case of bacteria transmission from bison to cattle under
      natural
      conditions. Moreover, though only pregnant bison pose even a
      theoretical
      risk of transmission, bulls, calves, yearlings, and other no-risk
      animals
      are routinely killed.

      What You Can Do:

      A national call-in day to save Yellowstone bison will be held on
      Thursday,
      February 2, from 8:30am until 5:00pm, Mountain Standard Time.
      Please call
      Suzanne Lewis, Yellowstone National Park Superintendent, at 307-344-
      2002
      and call Kate Gordon, Church Universal and Triumphant President, at
      1-800-245-5445.

      Tell Ms. Lewis that the slaughter of nearly 600 Yellowstone bison is
      unacceptable, illegal, and inconsistent with the National Park
      Service
      mission. Ask her to stop the capture and slaughter of Yellowstone
      bison.

      Politely ask Ms. Gordon to make room for bison on CUT-owned property.
      Remind her that CUT was given taxpayer dollars with the intent of
      allowing
      bison access to its lands and that the need to give bison more room
      to
      roam is greater now than ever before.

      Please cross post or share this alert with family, friends and co-
      workers.

      Thank you very much for your help!

      ***************LETTER TO YELLOWSTONE AND CUT ***********************

      February 2, 2006

      Yellowstone National Park
      Attn: Ms. Suzanne Lewis, Park Superintendent
      P.O. Box 168
      Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190-0168
      Phone: 307-344-7381 / Fax: 307-344-2005

      Dear Ms. Suzanne Lewis:
      The slaughter of nearly 600 Yellowstone bison is unacceptable,
      illegal, and inconsistent with the National Park Service's mission.
      I'm asking you to stop the capture and slaughter of Yellowstone
      bison.

      How is it that CUT, a religious group with headquarters on the land
      adjacent to Yellowstone National Park received 13 million of federal
      dollars in 1999 in a land deal intended to provide the bison and
      other wildlife access to important winter range on CUT lands, yet
      after seven years, not a single bison has been allowed to access
      that winter habitat? Instead, CUT grazes only a small herd of
      cattle on its land, with refusal to help the park.

      The public deserves the right to know... Where did the taxpayer's
      dollars go concerning the land deal with CUT? Why has CUT not
      allowed the grazing of park animals upon their property, since their
      part of the agreement was to do so? Where have our hard earned
      taxpayer dollars gone? I'm sending this information to all my local
      newspaper and TV stations... Maybe they would appreciate
      investigating....

      It's disappointing to know that our very own park services will not
      assist these beautiful animals when they are in despair. Something
      seems to be missing hereĀ…

      Sincerely,
