Livestock Notably Absent

The population density on the Virginia Range is about ten wild horses per thousand acres, compared to an average of two or three wild horses per thousand acres on lands managed by the BLM.  The aimed-at population density on those lands is one wild horse per thousand acres (to be achieved by the glorious ‘Path Forward’).

Why not ten on BLM lands?  Because most of the forage has been assigned to privately owned livestock.  That’s what drives the roundups and warehousing of wild horses.
