The Animal Welfare Institute said in a news release yesterday that 58 lawmakers from both houses of Congress sent a letter to the Department of the Interior condemning the BLM’s plan to sterilize wild mares from the Confusion HMA in western Utah.
Instead, they suggested, wild horse populations should be controlled with PZP.
Nobody wants to talk about causes.
The HMA is managed primarily for livestock.
Look at the resource allocations and management priorities of the RMP.
Then you’ll understand why the AML is low and the desire to shrink the herd is high.
