Environmental Group Asks For Investigation

An environmental group is calling for an investigation to determine if endangered species were harmed in the construction of an eastern Kentucky horse trail.

Kentucky Resources Council Executive Director Tom Fitzgerald wrote letters to Governor Steve Beshear and Wildlife Commissioner Jon Gassett complaining about bulldozer work on the pioneer horse trail in Letcher County.

Gassett said he has asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct the investigation Fitzgerald requested.

He also ordered a halt to work on the trail for now.
