…..and do it with a boatload of arrogance
Not surprisingly, the Montana Senate voted on a bill that would keep Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks from relocating bison anywhere in the state except for the National Bison Range in northwest Montana for the next two years. The Montana House has yet to pass any similar bill but there are many being considered.
Governor Brian Schwietzer has promised to veto any bills of this nature.
Senator Sharon Stewart-Peregoy, D-Crow Agency summed up what could result from this action.
“If the attack on buffalo continues, they will be listed as an endangered species. I don’t think you want to do that.”
To rub it all in with a strong note of arrogance, Sen. John Brenden sang a couple of bars of “Home on the Range” to the protests of Democrats.
If anyone thinks that western states aren’t run by the landed nobility you might want to think again.

Update. Ralph Maughan on the teabagging Republican Brenden. Brenden Farms got almost $500,000 in farm subsidy payments from 1995-2009. That is about $34,000 a year.
Over 15 years that would be an average of $33,152/Year. Some might call this federal government hater a hypocrite, and a mean one at that.
