The state has been ‘ground zero’ for wild horse gathers this year, with the Range Creek, Cedar Mountain, Four Mile, Bible Springs, Tilly Creek, Sulphur and Muddy Creek HMAs targeted for removals. Next on the list is the Onaqui Mountain HMA.
An article posted today in the Odgen-based Standard-Examiner looks at a proposed roundup that would remove 84% of the horses. Opposing viewpoints are considered.
“BLM does review range health when they renew grazing permits, but it’s true there are hundreds more cattle and thousands more sheep permitted than there are wild horses on the Onaqui.”
At what point do we start calling it collusion?
