Tribe fights habitat for endangered species

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians has filed lawsuit challenging an endangered species habitat for the Peninsular bighorn sheep.

The tribe says the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has wrongly included tribal lands in the habitat for the endangered sheep. The decision will derail economic development on 14,000 acres in the Palm Springs area, the lawsuit claims.

The tribe wants the habitat designation reconsidered in light of the potential impacts.
