    “”If there are domestic sheep, they probably shouldn’t risk it.””

    Maybe a paraphrase is “If there are domestic sheep, they shouldn’t waste the lives of the wild sheep nor waste the money in funding a doomed project”.

    I agree, jdubya.

Quote

‎"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."

~ Edward Abbey
