The backlash continues, see this report in the Reno Gazette Journal.
You’d think the people in Storey County would welcome the chance to become guardians of the Virginia Range horses. But it ain’t so.
Concerns about private owners removing the horses and selling them at auction can be addressed in the bylaws of the new organization. Those rules could also put an end to harmful practices like PZP darting of mares.
The horses will never be safe until they’re placed into the hands of the people who love them and provide the land for them to roam, via a non-profit corporation chartered for this purpose.
