Description

Nothing's as it seems in cattle country, especially with emotions running high over the controversial slaughter of buffalo that wander outside the boundaries of Yellowstone National Park and onto land where cattle graze. At the heart of the dispute is "brucellocis," a dangerous disease that can cause cows to abort their foetuses - and that can be transmitted to humans in contaminated dairy products. Montana veterinarian Jed McCane is working on a new vaccine that has the potential to wipe out the disease once and for all. It never occurs to him that anyone could be threatened by his research - until his truck mysteriously loses a wheel, nearly killing him. The accident brings an unlikely pair into his life: two activists from Buffalo Nation, a group determined to stop the slaughter of America's last free roaming bison. It also turns Jed's world upside-down, making it impossible for him to determine friends from enemies.show more
