Don't let the Forest Service endanger Thunder Basin National Grassland's wildlife!

The US Forest Service wants to pave the way for poisoning and shooting prairie dogs in the last patch of land where they're still protected in Wyoming's Thunder Basin National Grassland.

The Forest Service is caving to pressure from ranchers who graze their cattle on this public Grassland and view prairie dogs as pests.

But the science is clear: Prairie dogs are essential for the grassland ecosystem and wildlife of the Great Plains. Endangered black-footed ferrets completely depend on prairie dogs – and only about 300 of these ferrets remain in the wild.

Tell Forest Supervisor Russell Bacon: Don't strip away protections for Thunder Basin’s prairie dogs!
