Jackson Hole Elk Feeding ‘Step-Down’ Plan Is Finally Out

Tim Preso, Managing Attorney, Northern Rockies Office, Earthjustice: “They have let 12 years go by without doing anything. It’s a shame that we’re now in a position where all this stuff that we could have been addressing over 12 years is playing out in real time with chronic wasting on the doorstep of the refuge. It’s frustrating that this is the result of this course of conduct. But that’s water under the bridge. We’ve got to start from today, and at least this is a start.”

As a result, the Corps reissued the same permit for the Villages at Vigneto without ever analyzing the impacts of the proposed development on the San Pedro River. That’s downright inadequate and contrary to the law.”
