Prior to pounding in hundreds of T- posts into the ground. Before setting up a huge compound. Did the BLM get an environmental assessment? Did they get a turtle herder to clear all the areas they are now in or intend to be in? Do they have herders out there to keep the cattle rustler's horses from stepping on a turtle? Any builder/developer would have to.
According to the BLM, this is prime time for turtle movement. This is the time of year they were trying to force Cliven to remove all cattle from the range to protect the tortoise. Yet here they are, running hundreds of vehicles over hundreds of miles of habitat.
There are literally tens of millions of dollars in a turtle fund, collected from developers over the last few years. Yet they euthanize them.
Has the BLM paid a turtle mitigation fee?
If this is PRIME TIME, do they really care about the tortoise?
This is not about the tortoise and cattle. Wake up, before it is too late.
Prepare yourselves for battle. I know my ancestors did not fight and die to be controlled by a federal government!!! They fought for us to be FREE! We have enjoyed the fruits of their battles. It is time for us to sew the seeds for our descendants as our forefathers did for us.
Stand and be counted.
