Not One Word About Livestock at Devil’s Garden WHT

An article posted yesterday by The Sacramento Bee about the upcoming removal of 1000 wild horses from the from the Devil’s Garden Plateau WHT does not mention that the entire territory falls within permitted grazing allotments.

This story was linked on Drudge so how many readers came away with the wrong impression?

The Forest Service argues the roundup is necessary to “allow range and riparian ecological conditions to recover, while also supporting wild horse herd health by reducing competition for limited food, water and habitat.”

Competition with whom?  The oil and gas industry?  Mining companies?  Can’t possibly be livestock and public-lands ranchers.  They are blameless, as always.
