AP wins for best lead sentence of the day: A legislative proposal from the Idaho Wool Growers Association would give ranchers more options should their employees walk away and leave a herd untended. John Miller had fun writing the story:
“In Idaho, Little Bo Peep better keep up with her sheep. The livestock industry wants a new law, to charge shepherds who abandon their animals on the open range or in the lambing sheds with a misdemeanor crime. The Senate State Affairs Committee agreed to introduce the bill Monday, to punish sheepherders who go on the lam with up to a $1,000 fine and a year in jail. Helping somebody to leave their sheep would merit the same treatment, under the bill“/Kestrel West Morning Memo. More here.
Question: We need someone from southern Idaho to explain this bill? Sisyphus?
