Just about every time I drive to Kingman I see another dead cow by the road. On the way to the Master Gardener class in Kingman yesterday:
A few miles later we saw a dead calf in the ditch.
When will Arizona move into the 21st century and require fencing?
How many votes do the ranchers have? Or should we ask how much they contribute to election campaigns?
Recently two cows were killed on Stockton Hill just minutes before we got there at night. Why on earth would they have BLACK cattle here? Does anyone still have half a brain?
Do the ranchers make more $$$ off insurance payments than when selling the cattle?
It’s about time we stop subsidizing ranchers by allowing them to run cattle on PUBLIC land for next to NOTHING.
I’d love to see organically and humanly raised cattle on fenced pastures or at least away from paved roads.
After severe drought, ranchers couldn’t even keep cattle in some areas. They’re destroying the desert ecosystem. Even prickly pear cacti died during the drought. Not that it’s over, but at least we got a good rain in July 2021, after almost two years with essentially no rain. And we had a few winter rains. But it’s been months now and so incredibly windy this year.
And I just hit a black bull and totaled my truck. How much are insurance companies paying out for the cattle to the rancher and for the damaged vehicles? How many people get hurt?
Do we have any reports on that?
