FREDONIA, Ariz. — Forest employees have removed more than two tons of cow
manure that were marring cultural sites in northern Arizona.
The employees from the Kaibab National Forest spent two days this week sifting
through sagebrush, scorpions and dirt to remove the manure.
Forest officials discovered that the cows had broken through fences this past
winter and trampled an area known for its high concentration of pictograph
Many of the sites within the Kanab Creek Wilderness are designated as historic
and require special protection. They also hold cultural significance to nearby
Native American tribes.
The forest is planning other cleanup days throughout the year to address the
damage caused by the cows.
