Wild Horse Narrative

Trailcam image of free-roaming bucks on the Virginia Range.  Probably the last ones, thanks to those damn horses.

  • They’re a non-native species
  • They’re overpopulated
  • They have no natural predators
  • They’re not special (mostly escaped ranch stock)
  • They damage rangelands
  • They’re a threat to wildlife

Livestock are blameless, always.  That’s the wild horse narrative in a nutshell.  You’re supposed to conclude that wild horses are bad for the environment and should be removed.  Removal was the answer all along, but it had to be justified.
