The writer of an opinion piece that appeared yesterday in the Elko Daily Free Press argues that it’s impossible to say what’s best for wild horses until sterilization experiments are performed.
You can’t make assumptions about what’s best for them. Theory and experience have no value. Knowledge and facts are useless. You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.
Better to cut the ovaries out of mares than to have foals born into a world of degraded ecosystems and endangered wildlife. Spontaneous abortions, permanent injuries, infections and deaths are a just cost of doing business.
Let’s get the roundup back on track and ship those mares to Hines.
Anything for the public-lands ranchers.
