ONR Extra Prairie Chicken (3:35)

Featured in ONR Extras

A stocky, ground-dwelling bird is at the center of an impending decision which could have a major impact on businesses and industries that operate in northwest Oklahoma. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently conducting a study to determine whether the lesser prairie chicken should be listed as an endangered species and receive protection. State officials and business leaders testified at a forum sponsored by U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe--arguing that such a listing could pose major economic development problems in the region. Among those participating in that forum were new wildlife service director Dan Ashe and Oklahoma Secretary of the Environment Gary Sherrer.
