Notice of Intent to Sue Over Sheep Experiment Station
May 2, 2014

On April 26, five environmental activist groups filed a notice of intent to sue the U.S. Department of Agriculture for its failure to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the effects of sheep grazing on the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station (USSES) near DuBois, Idaho.

The activist groups want sheep grazing stopped until the EIS analysis is complete. The notice says they will file a lawsuit if the sheep station attempts to graze before the EIS is completed.

USSES has been grazing sheep on this land since 1915.
