Feds May Close Forests Near Fresno.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is looking to close 2-million acres of forest to protect a toad and frog habitat. The service held a meeting in Prather Wednesday to discuss closing parts of nine forests.
The move would affect 14 counties, including Fresno and Tulare counties. The government says it’s trying to protect the mountain yellow legged frog and the Yosemite toad. The population pf the two species have dwindled in recent years.
