Sterilization Research to Resume

A news release by the Animal Welfare Institute yesterday said the BLM is rebooting its plans to sterilize wild horses, at the behest of a group funded by Lucas Oil Products.

Hacks at the off-range corrals in Hines, OR will cut the ovaries out of mares gathered from the Warm Springs HMA last year.  Complications and fatalities related to the procedures will likely be high but are of no concern to these people.

Some of the survivors will be returned to the range to form non-reproducing herds, a dream-come-true for the public-lands ranchers.  Others may end up in the demonic Wild Spayed Filly Futurity.

Critics say wild horse populations should be controlled by contraceptives, which can lead to sterilization.  In both cases the result is the same—fewer horses on the range.

There is no meaningful opposition here, only a debate on methods and timing.

The ranchers want the horses gone quickly, the wild horse ‘advocates’ want them to decline slowly.
