Conservation groups, landowner battle over domestic sheep
Casper Star-Tribune
Frank Robbins says he doesn't mean to offend. He is, in his view, a victim of government harassment, a private-property owner targeted for doing with his own land as he sees fit. But the Thermopolis, Wyoming, rancher has offended many over the years, including, at various points, conservation groups, government employees and even fellow ranchers. A spat over his grazing leases with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management ultimately led to a court case decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Parasite in cats tied to infections in deer
The Columbus Dispatch
The American Bird Conservancy says in a report that cats kill "hundreds of millions of birds and more than a billion small mammals, such as rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks, each year." The group's latest broadside against free-range cats relates to a study, authored by Greg Ballish of Ohio State University's Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine, that ties the high number of outdoors cats with an increased incidence of a parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, among deer tested in the Cleveland area.
