    This is so sad.

    Will the Humboldt-Toiyabe forest Ruby Ranger District allow domestic sheep to yet again be turned out into the Ruby Mountains into bighorn habitat?

    Folks should contact Ranger Gar Abbas, and ask him to stop this. There is ONE sheep operation. An operation that grazes in a lot of other areas, too.

    Ban sheep from the Forest.

    I’m really pissed.
