Re "Sheep are losing ground," Sept. 2

Explaining the plan to cut critical protected habitat for endangered bighorn sheep in half, Jane Hedron, spokeswoman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, says "critical habitat is habitat considered essential for the recovery of the endangered species. It is not intended to include the entire range of a species."

Well, with that kind of logic, why not just reduce the size of the sheep's recovery area to a couple of acres in a zoo somewhere? That should make the Bush administration's friends in the mining industry quite happy.
