There Is No Wild Horse Crisis

The folks at PERC published a commentary earlier this week claiming responsibility for the $1,000 adoption incentive, describing it as a market-based solution that gets horses out of holding facilities and into real homes.

Why are they in holding facilities?  Because they compete for water and forage with other wildlife.

Yep, wildlife.  Privately owned cattle and sheep were omitted from the story.

So are they guilty of sloppy research or are they shills for the public-lands ranchers?

Why haven’t they proposed market-based solutions to the ranching problem?
