As in other parts of the west, ponds are drying up in this southern Colorado community but that hasn’t discouraged the woman who’s been protecting the herd for 17 years.

But some disagree with the plan, as explained in this report by the Santa Fe New Mexican, posted yesterday.
The herd is not federally protected, according to the story.
