The Examiner

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Friday announced an executive order that would increase hunting of big-game herds in western states, which he said will help preserve the population for animals such as mule, deer, elk, and antelope. The order aims to improve the habitat of the animals, which Zinke says have been harmed by residential development.
