TUCSON - The Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for failing to prevent livestock from damaging southwestern rivers and streams.

The lawsuit said the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are violating The Endangered Species Act by allowing cows to "trample rivers and streams on more than 30 grazing allotments in the upper Gila River watershed."

The center said that damage results in widespread degradation of stream-side forest habitat and water quality, which in turn affects several rare species.
