Bush Forest Service hits bighorn for ranchers

The Bush bighorn rule is "...absolutely unworkable," said Dale Toweill, the wildlife coordinator for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

TUCSON -- The outgoing Bush-Cheney Forest Service has issued a controversial and unpopular new rule that will harm bighorn sheep conservation and recovery across the west. Western states are especially upset with the rule.

Add this political favor, this time in service to the livestock industry, to the long list of corrupt Bush anti-conservation mistakes the Obama-Biden administration should correct soon after taking office in 2009.
