Public-lands ranchers can access six times as much acreage and twelve times as much forage as America’s wild horses and burros. Off-range corrals and long-term pastures are flooded with these animals because the WHB Act no longer affords the protections sought by Velma, not because there are too many of them!
How exactly do contraceptives roll back the changes to the Act, fix the AUM imbalance and put an end to the crony capitalism?
The PZP zealots are on the same side of the debate as the public-lands ranchers, differing only in methodology. The ranchers want the horses gone now while the darters want their numbers to decline gradually. Not quite what Velma had in mind.
