Cows On Fire In Washington. USDA Won't Let Montana Use Firefighting Helicopters
26 Aug 2015
The biggest fire in Washington history, one of nearly 70 burning in Western states, has burned an area bigger than Rhode Island. States ask for volunteers. Inaction and lack of prioritization by the federal government has made this the worst fire season ever.

Cows burn alive and in agony expire
as USDA bans Montana planes from fighting forest fires.
In Washington, Montana and elsewhere
people and animals are dead
because of obstruction and inaction by the feds. God have mercy.

The State of Washington asks for volunteers
to prevent more deaths to people cows and deer.

The USDA would rather let people, animals, birds, trees,
homes burn alive than let Montana use its planes
over national forest in Montana.

In Washington an area larger than Rhode Island has been burned.

Causing fires overseas with bombs is more a priority for this administration than stopping them at home. Some estimate that Washington fires will continue til November 1st!. An official
with the state of Washington said cattle were burning alive in the fields. In some cases, states' planes have been requisitioned by the feds for overseas wars rather than extinguishing
flames at home.

Last year was Washington's biggest fire ever, until this year's fires broke all previous records.

Note:

State of Washington instructs on how to dispose of cows burned alive.

Re: Cows On Fire In Washington. USDA Won't Let Montana Use Firefighting Helicopters

Re the 5 helicopters owned by the state of Montana which the USDA will not allow: from an editorial in the Billings Gazette "These aircraft have safely and effectively been used to attack fires with 324-gallon buckets of water.

But the USDA fire policy relayed to the state just last year says the Montana buckets are 100 gallons too big, state forester Bob Harrington told the Associated Press."
