Okanogan-Wenatchee NF Plan
#1
The Okanogan-Wenatchee NF in Washington is revising their forest plan. Right now they are only looking at grazing allotments for sheep and goats, but I am really tired of these folks treating sheep and goats as if they are the same species. I sent a letter objecting to their inclusion of goats, implicating them as disease carriers despite no scientific studies showing that this is the case. Sheep and goats ought to be treated as separate and distinct species. Goats are not as prone to disease as sheep, and their diseases are usually not easily transmitted between these two species. It's important for our government agents to start recognizing this! 

Here is the plan:
