Interior scrutinizes arrangement with rancher
THERMOPOLIS, Wyo. (AP) -- The Department of the Interior's inspector general
is looking into whether a rancher is being allowed to commit more grazing
violations under cover of an unusual settlement agreement with the U.S.
Bureau of Land Management.
The investigation follows questions raised by Public Employees for
Environmental Responsibility, a Washington, D.C., watchdog group.
"We're asking the inspector general to investigate irregularities in
rangeland regulatory enforcement," PEER Director Jeff Ruch said.
In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be
cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the
name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are
at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.
