Editor:

The Bryce Canyon National Park's Utah Prairie Dog Resarch Activities Plan focus' on an attempt to get the Utah Prairie Dog listed on the Endangered Specie List.

A prairie dog is a prairie dog whether it be listed as living in Bryce Canyon or the San Rafael or the Tule Valley. Regardless it is still a prairie dog. Problem is once it is listed as endangered and it shows up on your property be it in the city, on the farm or out on the ranch, it is an endangered specie and in all truth a persons property becomes worthless that is unless you are willing to spend thousands of dollars in case you are caught disturbing one.

Public comment is open for three weeks in February. To do so citizens may go to www.nps.gov/brca or by calling 435-834-4901 to comment. The document itself is available at public libraries in Panguitch, Salt Lake City, Tropic and other libraries in Southern Utah University, Brigham Young University, Utah University and Utah State University.

Remember that if the prairie dog becomes listed it then becomes protected throughout the entire state of Utah. Call your state legislators, representatives and senators asking that they pass a bill where any specie to be listed must pass a 2/3rds majority vote in the House of Representatives and the Senate, each, before it can be listed.
