It should be obvious to even the casual reader of these pages that the problem on western rangelands is not too many wild horses and burros but too many cattle and sheep, privately owned, of course.
Advocacy groups that push for contraceptives are allies of the ranchers. Get away from them as fast as you can. The ranchers already receive eighty percent of the forage on lands set aside for the horses and these people want to drive the ratio higher!
You don’t need an eleven-point plan, such as this PZP Manifesto from 2018, to save America’s wild horses and burros.
Only two actions are required:
- End public-lands ranching
- Restore the WHB Act to its original form
It’s a problem of public awareness and support. That’s how Velma did it.
