In May, the BLM went to New Mexico to seize thousands of privately owned acres, under the guise of saving the Jumping Mouse. Putting the non-endangered mouse on the endangered list gives them the "legal right". The BLM doesn't really care about any mice! It seems like a regular game plan... declare a certain animal endangered or a pest, and try to seize land through the courts!
Does the government really need more land?! They already own over 40% of the land in 9 states! In Nevada alone, they own more than 84%! They also own 69% in Alaska, 57% in Utah, and over 50% in Idaho and Oregon. Even 45% of California is owned by the U.S. government. So why the big push for land? It is all in the name of environmentalism. Where will the bully BLM show up next?
