Subject: [Tweeters] Sweeping generalities of "cattle country"

A brief note that sweeping generalities of areas mentioned in emails such as
"hostile to wildlife in cattle country" is not only partially inaccurate but
it hurts the relationships that we should all try to build.

Land use policies are often at odds between environmentalists and ranchers,
but I've seen many ranchers actively feed birds, report unusual birds
they've had on their land, hardly hostile to all wildlife.
There are individuals that are hostile to birds and wildlife throughout the
state. These sweeping generalities reinforce the divide of east vs west in
the state that some groups try to promote. We should try to encourage any
love of wildlife rather than blindly casting these negative generalities.
