Letter: Save the sage-grouse

We can’t stop the drilling but we can save the sage-grouse. Several months ago I obtained a copy of a picture of a beautiful male sage-grouse in his mating stance.

I had the photo matted and framed and it is a centerpiece in my house. I ask: What is more beautiful, the grouse or a drilling rig?

Save the sage-grouse.
