UPOM has filed a protest against the BLM’s proposal to adopt an application by the American Prairie Reserve to remove interior fencing and allow year-round grazing on certain allotments. APR’s application also indicates their desire to switch the classification of the bison they own from livestock to wild, free-roaming bison.
UPOM’s protest is the first step in stopping the APR’s grazing permit change. It establishes standing for us in the event BLM goes forward with adopting the proposal even with the strong protest against it. You can download UPOM’s official protest letter by clicking here.
