Public-lands ranchers don’t hide their disdain for wild horses. The Public Lands Council, a cheerleader group attached to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, makes their position known on this page.
The American Petroleum Institute, a trade group for the energy industry, must have a similar page on its site. After all, oil and gas companies are major threats to wild horses according to some advocacy groups.
See if you can find it.
After that, please indicate
- How much forage has been lost to oil and gas exploration and production
- How many horses have been displaced from public lands by those operations
- How much AMLs can be increased by ending oil and gas production on those lands
What’s that? Still haven’t found that policy statement on the API web site?
