The radical environmental groups, sensing they have nearly played out the Mexican spotted owl ploy, started looking for another tool to aid and abet their harassing tactics under the gist that they are saving our environment. For whom? Not for me. They now have found what they were looking for, the Uinta Mountain snail.
In the very near future they will find the Dixie snail, Manti snail, Cache snail and snails on all our forest lands. This specie will be used to stop timbering, mining, oil exploration, hunting, and fishing. One might be stepped on.
To prove a point, let us not forget their antics and the end result with the Kanab snail. Your silence is what the enviro's are hoping for.
