Washington Cattlemen want to try an “experiment” on your wildlife management areas

It seems that bad ideas just never go away. Even after they’ve been spanked in court, the Washington Cattlemen still want to waste tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of taxpayer dollars on this ridiculous exercise which is damaging to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife owned and managed, wildlife management areas in Washington State. More welfare grazing disguised as an “experiment”.

Do you want to help WWP stop this again?

  1. It is really time to get angry about these welfare ranchers using their political pull to take over the state wildlife management areas.

    Please donate so WWP can fight these bastards again.

    GAAAHHH!! Just like a plan for a dam never seems to completely die, those who want to protect our environment always have to be on the defensive.

    Was it David Brower who said something to the effect that regarding the environment “Every victory is temporary; every defeat is permanent.”?

    It seems a tad long! Hope it is of interest and works.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
