WHBAB Day 2: Back to the ‘Fast Disappearing’ Days

The low water mark of the morning session came when Barry Perryman, a new member of the Advisory Board, suggested that the BLM find additional reasons to remove wild horses from public lands, such as the protection of threatened species (e.g., sage grouse or desert tortoise).

The highlight of the afternoon session was a remark by Ginger Kathrens, during a review of the BLM Report to Congress, that the proposed actions would take wild horse populations back to ‘fast disappearing’ levels, a reference to the preamble of the WHB Act of 1971.

If your belief at the beginning of the day was that the BLM wants more players from Team H off the field and more players from Team L on, nothing was offered in the day’s proceedings to convince you otherwise.
