The Pine Nut gather will occur in November, according to a report dated 07/21/18 by KOLO-TV in Reno, NV.
Over half the area where horses were found in 1971 (when the WHB Act became law) has been designated a herd area (red border in the map below), which has no AML and is not managed for WHB, due to inadequate food and water. However, it does have sufficient resources for other animals, such as, ahem, cough-cough, cattle and sheep.
These roundups, especially on herd areas, aren’t about saving money or protecting an endangered species. They’re a payoff to the beef lobby and the crybabies they represent.
One way to put an end to this crap would be to raise the grazing fee from the current $1.41 per AUM to $25 per AUM, in line with grazing costs on private land. The government serfs would be loading their cattle back on 18-wheelers faster than you can say Slaughterhouse Sue.
