Our guest today is Gayle Hunt, President & Founder of the Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition (COWHC),  established as a non-profit organization in 2002.
The Ochoco National Forest is seeking comments on a proposal to revise the
Ochoco Wild and Free Roaming Herd Management Plan, and sent a Scoping Letter to the public that is vague and doesn’t state the proposed Appropriate Management Level (AML), the number of wild horses and burros that will be allowed to remain on this HMA.  (The current AML is 55-65 wild horses – not allowing a high enough number to be viable ).
We’re asking YOU help save these horses and send in comments to the Forest Service requesting the AML be set at a viable herd number.  In order to have a viable herd number, the Forest Service needs to set an AML of a minimum of 150-200 horses, including 50 breeding age adults.  Also, please ask for a genetically sustainable herd.  The Forest Service is doing genetic augmentation, so ask them to provide the public with all research and documentation for genetic augmentation, since their management decisions have included this.
On this show you’ll learn more about how COWHC is currently trying to preserve the current 130 or so wild horses currently on the Big Summit HMA, about 30 miles east of Prineville, Oregon.  Check out the COWHC facebook page HERE for the latest updates.  COWHC is boots on the ground and provides one of the most accurate herd inventories in the nation, annually bringing a cadre of about 80 volunteers to count these wild horses on their turf.  They also work on on-the-ground improvements like water developments, forage improvements, fence removal and other projects.
Public comments for this plan for Big Summit wild horses are due by July 21, 2017 and can be submitted by email
to BLM_NV_East_Pershing_Complex_EA@blm.gov with “East Pershing Complex Gather” in the subject line.

Questions and written comments should be directed to: Samantha Gooch, Wild Horse and Burro Specialist, BLM Humboldt River Field Office, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., Winnemucca, NV 89445.

You can also submit a comment electronically at https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public/CommentInput?project=46228
Commenters should be aware before including their address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in their comment, that their entire comment – including identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time.  While they can ask BLM in their comment to withhold personal identifying information from public review, BLM cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.  Anonymity is not allowed for submissions from organizations or businesses and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses.
This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

The “Endangered” Frog and Toad-Revisited

Leave a comment

new-logo25Author,
Chuck Frank
lightofthenation.us

Recently, the US Fish and Wildlife issued their biological opinion regarding how the nine Sierra Nevada National Forests in California must address the endangered yellow-legged frog and the Yosemite toad. If 197 pages is too much for you to read then here is a snapshot.mountain frog

Now, perhaps many of you out there recall the many public hearings on whether to list the yellow-legged frog and the Yosemite Toad as a threatened or endangered species.

Most of the people that went to these hearings, Congressman, Tom McClintock for one, and thousands of others were strongly opposed to the listing. I too showed up for the grand occasion.

With as many people who went as the “anti-listers”, I coined a word, you would have thought that the Fish and Wildlife agency would have listened.

Well, as it turned out, the public hearings were just a formality, an exercise, a procedure that was meant to give the public input while the Feds, all along, had no intention of doing what the majority of the public wanted. Fish and Wildlife is sadly tuned into the Enviro-Times, and that is our latest environmentalist radio show streaming from the planet Mars. So I dialed in on K-ECO and low and behold the Sierra National Forest Service Management is “very concerned” about the immense  impact of protecting frog and toad together.

Unless we forget, we were told that the identification of these species as endangered would not have ANY significant impact on Sierra National Forest or public access. Sure. Well, well, well, think again.  It is all by design and deception. We were not told the truth and the lies of Fish and Wildlife have now been exposed. What we had feared is now coming upon us.

And here is the rest of the story.

No permits are being issued at this time until these rules are clarified for summer grazing in the Sierra National Forest. This ruling could and is already adversely affecting recreation, along with All-Terrain-Vehicles, firewood cutting, fishing, hunting, and logging, because it delineates that no wheeled vehicles may be used in the forest that “may be” a habitat for the Yosemite frog. This would also effect mechanical thinning, which is one way of reducing ladder fuels, which contribute to high intensity uncharacteristic wildfires.

For the Forest Service management to protect what the US Fish and Wildlife life is requiring, it will take away significant resources from areas like forest restoration to prevent uncharacteristic wildfires, as well as many other areas. These rules represent another Agenda 21 unfunded nightmare mandate.

In a nutshell, if our Congressmen, Sheriffs and County Supervisors do not stop the encroachment of our National Forests and the public right to use them, we the people will be left in the dust and radical environmentalism will continue to chip away at our God given land rights to where millions will bow to the new enviro-gods of the Fish and Wildlife Agency.

And, by the way, don’t include me in any of the Sunday morning worship services honoring the czars of Fish and Wildlife.
