Did BLM allow politics to trump science?

That’s the argument made by PEER (Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility), described in this media report from Boise, Idaho. Defenders of livestock grazing on Western public lands always seem to overlook the fact that the grass grows much greener in Eastern states like Florida, and thus it takes less land to fatten up a cow. It’ll never happen, but the best thing for wildlife on Western public lands is to remove all livestock and do so now.
