Two free-range cows drink water from a kid’s pool placed in a Golden Valley yard for wild rabbits and birds to enjoy. The cause associated with cows wandering into residential yards is that gates along the fences that separate BLM public lands with private property are left open. It isn’t the fault of the ranchers or their cattle travelling to where food and water sources are; it is the fault of those individuals who go through gates and forget to close them.

The majority of cattle in our area are free range, and many ranchers lease public lands from the Bureau of Land Management
