Group Seeks Information on New Grazing Initiative

The Flathead Beacon of Kalispell, MT reported yesterday that the Western Watersheds Project filed a lawsuit earlier this week to obtain more information about a program announced in 2017 and launched in 2018.

BLM says the project will give land managers and permit holders greater flexibility in managing privately owned livestock on public lands.

WWP claims the program will put wildlife, including some endangered species, at risk.

Although the link to the map is broken, the project may involve lands set aside for wild horses, given the list of operators in the 2018 news release.
