Twelve horses have been lured into traps at the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Range, according to a report issued today by The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, CO, with nine permanently removed from the range. Volunteers with ‘Friends’ of the Mustangs are helping the BLM with the roundup.
“The horses have been cooperative and they’ve been taking our bait.”
Body condition scores have been fours and fives, which contradict claims that the horses did not have enough to eat (due to overpopulation and ongoing drought).
“They’re in good condition. They look healthy.”
The real concern, of course, is not for the welfare of the horses, but for the prosperity of the government serfs who run their livestock on surrounding lands.
