Fort Carson considering cattle on Pinon Canyon maneuver site

PUEBLO, Colo. - Fort Carson officials are studying whether they can let ranchers graze cattle on the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, ranchers and the military have been at odds for years on access to grazing land.
