cyotha: Cattle versus wildlife in the dry American West

Here's an interesting article about grazing on public lands in Eastern Washington State.

The many comments submitted by readers are even more educational than the article (if you ignore the usual knee-jerk name-calling by idiots).

The debate represents widely varying points of view, from recreational users, hikers and hunters, to cattle ranchers. It brings up a number of issues, including taxpayer subsidies to resource users, invasive species, grazing impact on the environment, abuses of the system, state politics and how that affects land-use decisions...you name it.
