Fence Construction on Crown Range in the Horsefly Forest District
The District Manager of the Horsefly Forest District approved construction of a barbed wire fence under a grazing permit on June 5, 1995, immediately before the Forest Practices Code came into force. The fence was required to let 40 yearling cattle graze an area of Crown land near the Horsefly River and to restrict the period of such use to early summer. On June 17, 1995, the permittee cleared a right‐of‐way and installed a temporary electric fence.
After referral to other Crown agencies, the approval was modified with additional conditions in October, 1995. The District planned to complete a range use plan in mid‐1996 and the modified approval required that grazing in the area had to be addressed in he future plan.
