We the people ask the federal government to Call on Congress to act on an issue:

Livestock Grazing on Public Lands Rectify the Heavy Impact

Created by T.B. on November 23, 2017

Reductions will address ecological problems caused by commercial livestock grazing such as:

● displacement of wildlife, reduction of wildlife populations;
● degradation is occurring to the land;
● transmission of pathogens;
● degradation is occurring to plant communities;
● native wildlife are killed to advance the interests of public lands ranchers;
● livestock are damaging to sensitive wetlands or riparian areas; or
● Ruminant grazing contributes to the nitrogen load in streams as well as nitrous oxide gasses also
a greenhouse gas.

  1. We the people of this land have had enough of the blatant decastation of our land and greedy cattle farmers are part of the problem. – get the cattle off our land – let the horses and burros back to their free roaming lives.


  2. The cows degrade land. Millions of cows, hundreds together degrade land and water. Wildlife and wildhorses and burros do not. Stop riding roughshod over the rest of us who are not ranchers and fossil fuel type.
