Sunday News Program Looks at Wild Horses

A segment yesterday on Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson briefly discussed the wild horse ‘problem’ in the western U.S.  Although it did mention the costs of helicopter roundups and long-term holding, it did not consider ‘other mandated uses’ of the territory where the horses roam.

Much of the information was sourced from the BLM so, of course, the public-lands ranchers get a pass.  No wild horse advocates were interviewed.

An aerial view of the Palomino Valley Off-Range Corrals appears at 1:27 and ranching shill Chris Stewart makes a few remarks at 2:26.  The guy is bought and paid for.

At best, the piece is incomplete.  At worst, it is biased against the horses.
