My rant - never mind. But, the ranchers that burn off rangeland for their cattle, really piss me off. So much wildlife and plant life dies in these fires. Plus, they always get out of control.
We got a call that our mountain was on fire and nearing the cabin. Of course, we were both in the city, so dealing with the forestry service and local volunteer fire departments by phone is frustrating to say the least.
They rarely get into trouble for burning, but I have seen the aftermath, and many lizards, turtles and ground nesting birds' nests are killed and destroyed. Now, multiply that by the wildlife that is killed when they start cutting hay. Sometimes, depending on the rain, they do it several times during the summer.
I quit eating red meat for five years in protest. Guess I need to start drinking/using nut milks. Eventually, maybe their practices will change, but I'm not holding my breath.
