Prairie Dog Poisoning by US Forest Service

This is an email that is circulating among the folks who are currently engaged in breeding and re-introducing the Black-footed Ferret:




"As you may know, the US Forest Service has proposed poisoning of prairie dogs in South Dakota at the most successful restoration site of the black-footed ferret. This is on federal public lands owned by all US citizens. The poisoning proposal is politically motivated, largely by the agricultural industry, and could have devastating effects on the largest black-footed ferret population. The US Forest Service released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) detailing the proposal and is taking public comments until July 23rd. So if you oppose the poisoning of prairie dogs on your federal lands now is the time for your voice to be heard. You can either write a personalized comment or sign on to comments made by environmental organizations (links below).



To read the proposal by the US Forest Service and write a personalized comment:

I encourage you to make your voice heard and pass this information along to anyone else who may be interested in commenting.



Thanks for your time,

Travis
