USFS: Removing Modoc Wild Horses Good for Environment

An opinion piece that appeared yesterday in the Redding-based Record Searchlight was written by a spokesman for the USFS to ‘correct some inaccuracies.’  However, it fails to mention that the Devil’s Garden WHT falls within permitted livestock allotments.

So much for accuracy.

Removing wild horses from HMAs and WHTs is good for the public-lands ranchers, their overlords, cheerleaders and political allies.

That is the implication of other statements in the piece, such as ‘reducing competition for limited food, water, and habitat’ and ‘communities that also depend on these lands.’
