    There seems to be an abundance of guys in southern Utah who have a sexual thing for horses. Maybe Utah can legalize marriages between Utah men and horses. Just bribe the Utah government enough and these guys will be in the saddle with their horse brides.

    Oh goody! its up for discussion. Since when does the BLM give a care what the people who are paying their paychecks think?????????? Lets have a town hall meeting. Not near the areas where the actual cattleman or ranchers will be heard, but near the densely populated subdivisions so they get to voice their opinion. You know, not the people who are losing their livelihood. Lets ask them what they think about something they have no idea about. Great idea from another worthless federal agency. Lets go to Lehi to take comments in Salt lake from city folk to represent ranchers and cattleman who don’t use “telecommunications”. This is your elected and hired federal government at work folks. Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Don’t you think they would actually have the open forums in Iron county where the vast majority of the problem exists?
