Hunt Grazing Decision
Washington, Feb. 27, 1908
United States Attorney Carl
Rasch ot Montana, has notified
Gifford Ptnchot, Chief of the Uni
ted States Forest Service, that
the United States Circuit Court
of Appeals at San Francisco, has
affirmed the decision of Judge
Hunt in the grazing trespass case
instituted by the Government
against Thomas Shannon.
No copy ot the decision has yet
been received by the Forest Ser
vice, but it is believed that it for
bids stockman to allow theircat
tle to drift upon the National
Forests, and that the National
Forests need not be fenced to pre
vent such drifting, although the
state laws may make such fencing
necessary for private lands.
In December, 1904-, Shannon
allowed his cattle to drift upon
the Little Belt National Forest
in Montana. To put a stop to
this, suit was brought by the
United States, and on March 18,
1907, Judge Hunt, in the United
States Circuit Court for the State,
rendered a decision in favor ot
the Government, and issued an
injunction perpetually restrain
ing Shannon from allowing his
cattle to drift upon the Forests.
Montana has a fence law by
which land owners must fence
their lands before they can obtain
redress from stockman whose
cattle, feeding upon the open pub
lic domain, range upon and in
jure the private lands.
Shannon’s council argued that
this state law should apply as
against the United States, but
Judge Hunt held that the power
of Congress over the public lands,
including the National Forests,
is complete; that Congress has
lawfully delegated to the Secre
tary of Agriculture the authority
to make regulations to protect
the Forest; that the Secretary
had properly made a regulation
that cattle must not range upon
the Forests without permit, and
that consequently Shannon was
a trespasser when he allowed his
cattle to drift upon the Little
Belt Forest, although it was un
Shannon appealed fromthisde
cision, and as Montana is in the
9th Federal Judicial Circuit,
which embraces most of the
Rocky Mountain and Pacific
states, his appeal was heard by
the United Siates Circuit Court
of Appeals for the 9th Circuit,
sitting at San Francisco. The
Court has now affirmed Judge
Hunt’s'decision, and this judg
ment is binding upon all Federal
Courts in the Circuit. A similar
case is pending in the United
States Circuit Court for Colora-1
do, which is in the Bth Circuit. 1
