Suffering desert wildlife kicked by anti-green Bush

SAN DIEGO -- Continuing his attack on endangered wildlife, Bush's US Fish & Wildlife (dis)Service will announce Wednesday it again won't protect the imperiled and declining flat-tailed horned lizard under the Endangered Species Act.

This very cool and fascinating native lizard lives in the lower Sonoran Desert of Yuma County AZ, and San Diego, Imperial, and Riverside Counties CA.

The flat-tailed horned lizard is primarily threatened by off-road vehicles and habitat loss.

The Center for Biological Diversity and other greens have been pursuing protection for this lizard for many years, and will keep up the fight to prevent its extinction.
