BLM said today in a news release that the operation had concluded, with 1,716 excess horses captured and 47 returned to their home range. The 24 deaths were not reported.
There has been much discussion on these pages about the effect on the horses but how many poor ranchers have been hurt by the mandatory AUM curtailment needed to achieve the Mojave-Southern Great Basin RAC standards for rangeland health?
There is no curtailment.
