WHB Advisory Board Meeting Starts Tomorrow

The meeting on Day 2 and Day 3 will be livestreamed according to a report posted yesterday by KSL in Salt Lake City.

The theme of the meeting will be wild horse and burro overpopulation.  Not that it’s true, but an excuse is needed for removing more of these animals from lands set aside for them.

Who’s pushing that?  The National Horse and Burro Rangeland Management Coalition, a livestock advocacy group.  See this position statement in Ag Daily, posted 10/05/18.

“Overpopulation of horses and burros continues to threaten the health of our rangelands and negatively impacts the multiple-use of these public lands.”

Translation: Wild horses are burros are robbing us of forage that could be consumed by cattle and sheep.  They have to go.
