Public-lands ranchers in Modoc County, CA are optimistic about the future, according to a story posted today by Tri-State Livestock News, now that 932 wild horses have been removed from the Devil’s Garden Plateau WHT.
The Forest Service is working with local permit holders to allow cattle back onto the range sometime this year. Another roundup is planned for the fall.
Wild horses and burros are being pushed off public lands—territory set aside for them—so their food can be given to privately owned cattle and sheep.
Yet you still have a bunch of idiots running around with their PZP dart guns trying to convince everyone else that WHB are overpopulated on western rangelands.
