Dan Rather Presents: Range War – an Investigation into Wildlife Preservation – July 22 at 8 ET|5 PT

AXS TV’s newest investigative reporting series, DAN RATHER PRESENTS, returns Tuesday, July 22 with the premiere of the documentary special “Range War.”

“Range War” focuses on the battle for the future of Montana’s great plains being waged by three very different groups. On one side, a coalition of environmentalists seek to create one of the largest private wildlife reserves in North America and Native Americans seek to reconnect with a way of life that died when they were put on reservations. While the state’s powerful cattle interests take the opposite view, and argue those plains are for livestock grazing, and no conservation experiment should be allowed to change that. It is a battle being fought in farms across Montana, and also the courts and the state legislature.

“Dan Rather Presents: Range War” continues Emmy® Award-winning news journalist Dan Rather’s commitment to heading to the heart of some of this country’s most compelling and underreported stories. “In his trademark fashion, Rather has crafted yet another groundbreaking documentary that allows viewers exposure to an American conflict,” said Michele M. Dix, AXS TV’s Senior Vice President of Programming and Development. “This is an issue that many Americans may not even be aware of, and AXS TV is proud to be able to bring it to the forefront.”

Don’t miss this eye-opening, thoughtful and heartfelt look at a life-or-death drama being played out on the great plains of Montana, exclusively on AXS TV.
