(CCN) How is This Allowed?! Wild Buffalo Rounded Up and Kept Without Food Or Water To Protect Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Site :
Protestors from all across the U.S. have stepped in to help defend the Native American people whose homes and livelihoods are being threatened by the impending pipeline.
These brave souls have been subject to brutal treatment and ruthless threats from officialsand proponents of the pipeline, but people aren’t the only ones suffering.
In a post on Facebook, Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) wrote, “It has been reported that wild buffalo are being corralled and held behind razor wire fencing without food or water near the Dakota Access Pipeline – and that there have been threats of killing the buffalo by the construction company.”
The ALDF is currently investigating the legality of the treatment of these animals. If seeing this makes you angry, we encourage you to learn more about what is happening at Standing Rockand share this and other stories with everyone you know to raise awareness.
We cannot ignore this blatant disregard for the basic rights of people, and animals, that is occurring all in the interest of building a profit-generating oil pipeline.
