Motorcyclists Doing Real Damage To Forest

Advertisement

Referring to the homeless pair living in the forest, I think it is a shame that they were forced out. They are doing no harm, however, it's a shame what is happening in Houston Creek, Star Valley.

Here, the forest is being destroyed by motorcyclists and the Forest Service refuses to do anything about it. The area has a "Road Closed" sign. Nevertheless, they have used a bulldozer to build a racing track. The neighbors have complained to the forest ranger, to no avail. A petition for a noise ordinance has not been answered. The sheriff is called, but as soon as the deputies depart, the riders are back harassing the neighbors and wildlife.

It is a shame that homeless people are forced to move from the forest while the ones doing the real harm (and) being public nuisances are allowed to do so again and again.
