Suppose an area can support ten or more wild horses per thousand acres. The stated carrying capacity is one horse per thousand acres. The current population density is three horses per thousand acres.
- Claims will be made that the area is overpopulated
- Arguments will be made that excess horses must be removed
- Meetings will be held to draft a management plan
- Helicopters will be deployed
- Horses will be gathered
Given that the area is now underpopulated, what do you suppose will fill the gap?
