'Preserve this precious site'

Print Article

Sacred, precious, historic, irreplaceable. These are words that come to mind when one thinks of the beautiful pristine, virgin acreage along County Road G. A priceless vestige of original prairie; as it was, even before our native Indians.

Now comes the Rock County Humane Society wanting to build a complex on that precious site. Surely in all of Rock County we can find an alternative site and preserve this awesome, historic landscape for all our future children and generations to come. I would personally contribute $100 to fund a search committee to find that alternative site.

I certainly appreciate the Humane Society's current need for a location change and expansion. However there is no immediate urgency here and once this original prairie acreage is invaded and desecrated it is gone forever. I appeal desperately to the Humane Society Board to reconsider their decision and do the right thing; seek an alternative and preserve this precious site. And I ask the public to appeal to the Humane Society Board to do the right thing in this rescue mission.
