Bison Protester Arrested, Charged for Blocking Road


To protest the slaughter of Yellowstone National Park bison, a 20-year-old man chained himself to a 50-gallon drum full of cement in the middle of the road to the Stephens Creek bison capture facility near the park's northern border on Thursday morning.


Comfrey Jacobs, from Grand Junction, Colo., was arrested by park rangers after spending about five hours chained to the 800-pound barrel. Jacobs has since been released on bond.


Jacobs' protest had no effect on daily operations, however, as three more horse trailers loaded with bison for shipment to slaughter left the Stephens Creek facility as his chains were being cut.
