Comfry Jacobs protesting against the Wild Bison slaughter in Yellowstone.

Just when it seemed that nothing could stop the endless Global human brutality against animals, a tiny miracle has just happened.
The slaughter of Yellowstone Bison has been stopped, for now.
Are you listening God, you surely must be?
Can one person really make a difference, well this man did.
His name is Comfrey Jacobs, and he absolutely refused to sit by and watch this horror continue and do nothing.
He stopped them in their tracks, or on the road, by chaining himself to a barrel blocking the road.
Do you know how cold it is in Yellowstone right now?
It is unbearable, I have been there in nearly every month of the year and as the locals always say, “ there are two seasons here, August and Winter, “ they are not kidding.
The campaign to slaughter these Wild Free Bison, is of course a result of intense, ongoing, pressure from the Montana Cattle Ranchers, who loath them and continue every year to claim that the Bison ” could infect their cows.”
These Wild Free Bison do not know where the state lines are, you stupid cattle ranchers, get over it!
Yellowstone has been their Ancestral home for millions of years, have long have you been there?
In the past few hundred years, the US Government and hired thugs, have killed millions of their Ancestors and these few remaining in Yellowstone, are all that is left, must they die for these yet another politically influenced project?
Of course, the man at the center of this is now awaiting his day in court, but guess what?
A trial will only bring more new support to help stop this insanity.
If I were closer, I would be at his trial every single day, for one thing, to say thank you.
“Dear Comfry, you speak for me, for the Bison and for so many people around the world, who feel exactly like you.”
But you are the one who did it, thank God for you.
If you any of you are close enough, perhaps you may go and show support for his selfless actions.
The single fly in this ointment, and of course you knew that there would have to be at least one, this man will be tried by a judge, there will be no jury.
Sometimes, I feel so defeated, like I am talking to the wind, or to just the few of you, who come here to this little, insignificant Blog and like me, want to keep animals everywhere safe.
And yes, sometimes, I feel like we are not really making a difference, or that nothing will ever change, but then this happens and my batteries are completely charged up all over again.
Look out world, here we come!

Very interesting to read, thanks for posting. I do not like to think of Yellowstone park without these Bison. They are not dangerous to humans unless the Human does not follow safety rules. . If they were not there I bet a lot of people would not visit the park at all. Why not leave them alone.
You are absolutely correct my dear cousin, on every point.
Many, many years ago, my very first trip there was to see them.
They take your breath away in person and they need to be protected!
Wow, what a great person he is. It’s easier to try and speak with numbers but he is willing to do it alone. Bravo to him.
Yes, he is.
Imagine how cold he must have been there.
Oh I can probably know–I live in South Dakota. 🙂 We get excited when it turns to 30 degrees. Haha
Well duh, I guess you do know how cold it is there. The winters in SD can be brutal!!!
Hehe! Yes they can, especially this year. 😦 Not much for snow but mostly negative temps. Yuck!
Never ever underestimate the power of even one person. comfrey Jacobs is the kind of person that restores my faith in humans.
Yes, he absolutely does that!
He is a hero.
To all of us!
This man is a hero!!!
Yes, yes, yes!
What a guy, and this one guy, one man has made a difference, as do every single one of us who deeply care for the animals on our planet. It can feel disheartening at times, but even the smallest of actions helps ultimately I believe. 🙂 sonmicloud
We are in complete agreement~
Not sure if you have been to my newest Blog.
It is about Global Culture.
Hope you can come by one day~
I have done. It’s superb. The first post alone was enough to have me instantly as a follower. You are some kind of inspiration Gator Lady 😀 sonmicloud.
I am humbled. Thank you.
When I read about this amazing man…. INSPIRATION. Just a beautiful and brilliant reminder that it really just takes speaking your truth, yes? THANK you, sir. ♥
If we were closer, you and I would be sitting on the ground next to him!
He is doing this for all of them and for those who cannot be there with him in person.
Our hearts are to be sure.
What a WONDERFUL thing to say! I love that…. 🙂 He wants everyone to see what a cuddle-bunny he is. For sure.
What a wonderful story, so refreshingly positive. Just shows that one person can make a difference and that we should never give up trying even if we feel as though the odds of success are against us. I am reminded of a Margaret Mead quote I often use: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
