“New Gold Butte” Wild Fire
Posting Date: 05/08/2012

South of Mesquite, Nevada on April 26,2012

I see you are burning FEED once again, the renewable resource that should be used for mankind and a healthy habitat for lots of species of wildlife. Now you (BLM) as land managers are burning this land one more time, the third time since cattle grazing was abandoned off the range in the 1990's.

BLM's superb land management has managed to burn every living creature out of house and home three times in just over a decade, killing every insect, reptile, mammal, and bird nest. Those critters that escape the terrible heat and smoke, down a burrow hole, what do they have to come up for?

Only a black charred earth, no feed, no protection, no chance for new growth until next spring. It would have been better to burn than face the dread of starvation.

Clark County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan managed to destroy human man's way to harvest and use the renewable resource, (brush, grass, and all other vegetation-FEED), by not allowing cattle to graze. The cows harvest the feed and convert the desert forage into a eatable commodity. (Red meat for your table.) Hamburger, steaks, good stuff!

No more moo by '92. Cattle free by '93. Good job land managers!

No grazing, high fuel loads, and hot fires. It's a beautiful sight, also. (Black tortoise shells!)
