Oh good grief the greenies are at it again.

Because of recent field observations by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, two environmental groups are suing the National Park Service. The groups claim there is overgrazing in Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. The Park is home to two species of cacti listed under the Endangered Species Act, both of which are the topic of debate.
“National Parks, tiny cacti, fragile soils and a bunch of cows don’t mix,” said Jonathan Ratner,Western Watersheds Project director for Utah, Wyoming and Colorado, in a statement, the Salt Lake Tribune reported, “Unfortunately, the service hasn’t wanted to address this problem and has turned a blind eye to the trampling and degradation caused by cattle in Capitol Reef.”
In an email from over a year ago, there is a discussion of the negative impacts grazing was having on certain species in the park. The lawsuit is using the email, which was acquired through the Freedom of Information Act.
