In the late 1980s, I was on a project in Vegas, and heard from locals about developers who, anticipating passage of desert tortoise protections in the near future, went at the northern valley with a vengeance. Rather than have someone going around looking for critters to relocate, they just went and dozed everything into piles, removing habitat and thus simplifying the ultimate development into housing.

Man's progress.....
