Oregon Wild Horse Group Sues Crook County Commission

The Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition has sued the Crook County Commission for holding a series of meetings in May to comment on proposed changes to the Big Summit Wild Horse Management Plan without giving proper notification of the meetings, according to a brief published this morning by Courthouse News Service.

Commissioners sent a letter to the Forest Service advocating for Alternative 2 in the EA, which would reduce the AML on the WHT, arguing that the other two alternatives would allow a “downward trend … in forage availability,” leading to a “significant reduction or exclusion of wildlife and permitted livestock grazing from the Territory.”

The three-page letter, dated May 14, appears as Exhibit 1 at the end of the court filing.
