A very large church organization, the Church Universal and Triumphant, is set to receive millions from the US Government…..for allowing buffalos to graze on the churchs' 12,000 acre property north of Yellowstone National Park. The Montana land, which the church puchased in 1981; is adjacent to the national park and appearantly in need of grass cutting. So, what do they do? They get the US Government to not only trim it for free, but actually pay them for the right to do so. All this in the name of the bison aka the buffalo.
The exact fee has yet to be agreed upon. Rumors place the payment to be around $1.5 Million. This is on top of the $13 million the government has already paid the church since 1998 for conservation easements (whatever the fuck that is).
If you're like me, you probably have never heard of the Church Universal and Triumphant, but they certainly aren't the idiots in this case. Hell, they've collected millions from the government
