Keep buffalo corralled

Document Actions
As I see it, a person has the God-given right to protect life and property (HCN, 2/6/06: The Killing Fields). Yellowstone National Park encompasses approximately 2,219,799 acres. There are approximately 4,000 head of buffalo that roam freely upon this land (taxpayers’ land). This would amount to about 554.94 acres per head of buffalo.

If any rancher in the area owned or controlled the amount of land that Yellowstone does and had the income that Yellowstone generates each year, I feel sure he or she would be able to feed and confine his herd of 4,000 beef cattle.
