Petition to Protect Wildlife and our Economy
Millions of acres and animals, including sage grouse, are at imminent risk of burning, because the fuel load continues to increase on BLM land. Without grazing this inevitable.
We, the undersigned Petitioners demand that Battle Mountain Bureau of Land Management District manager, Douglas Furtado, be removed from his position because he has been ignoring and continues to ignore the pleas of Lander, Eureka and Nye County residents and even his own staff. Mr. Furtado, without notice and without hearings, reduces and impedes agriculture, mining, recreation and hunting. His latest action in demanding radical reductions in grazing imperils tens of thousands of animals with wildfire.
Mr. Furtado's actions also imperil the economies of all Nevada counties.
This Petition will be presented for action to the public and the following elected officials:
Lander, Eureka, Elko, Humboldt County Boards of Commissioners, City Council of Battle Mountain, Nevada State Senator Pete Goicoechea and all other Nevada State Senators, Nevada State Assemblyman Ira Hansen and John Ellison and all other Nevada assemblymen, Governor Brian Sandoval, Congressman Mark Amodei and Senator Dean Heller.
