MSLF attorney Ron Osphal published an article today in the Washington Examiner about the President’s much needed environmental reforms. Radical environmental groups are apoplectic and have begun issuing doomsday predictions about the consequences of his proposal.

Wyoming ranchers are increasingly threatened by the growing grizzly population, but environmentalists want to keep it listed as a protected species. MSLF is fighting for at risk ranchers against the radical environmental groups.
Scientists say the Yellowstone Area Grizzly has recovered and should no longer be listed on the Endangered Species List. It was a conservation success. Instead of rejoicing, big-city environmentalists sued to keep the bear on the endangered list. Now, in a new lawsuit, the radical groups are using the grizzly again to advance their anti-ranching agenda.
Idaho cattle ranchers Mike and Linda Lee Hanley passed on their ranch to their daughter Martha Corrigan and her husband John, so the couple could carry on the family legacy. Then they learned the government had illegally cancelled their grazing rights.
America’s ranching families raise the livestock that feeds and clothes this country. But environmentalist lawyers are plotting to put them out of business and seize control of the western lands where cattle and sheep have freely roamed for a hundred years.
Parents should have the right to pass down to their children what they’ve worked so hard for all their lives. But when the Hanleys decided to pass their family ranch on to their children, they learned the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) illegally cancelled their grazing rights.
Keeping a family farm, sheep or cattle ranch profitable is a difficult enough without special interest groups making it harder. The grizzly bear was once an endangered species, but in 2017 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem’s grizzly population exceeded scientists’ minimum goals for the powerful predator. It had fully recovered. The agency tried to remove the animal from the endangered list, but was sued in Crow Indian Tribe v. United States of America. More recently, environmental groups also got involved trying to prevent delisting of the grizzly.
Ranchers and Farmers in western Wyoming asked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today to recognize the injuries ranchers and farmers will continue to suffer if the Court does not overturn a lower court’s decision to return the Yellowstone-area grizzly bear to the List of Endangered and Threatened Species.
MSLF attorney Ron Opsahl has an op-ed in RealClearPolicy, exposing radical environmentalist lawyers who profit from litigation without actually benefiting environmental conservation.
