Preserve Pima for nature, not gov't hobby ranches

Starved dead cattle litter the desert

TUCSON -- Tucson Citizen asked the question: Should Pima County allow ranchers to continue to graze cattle on land bought for preservation?

Ranching, no matter how carefully done, harms the Sonoran Desert.

County-owned preserve lands should be preserved, not run as expensive County-sponsored hobby ranches.

kudos ! grazing large beasts on desert is not sustainable - keep the beasts off public lands, especially those bought for conservation...
