Every year, wild horses are killed in accidents with vehicles.
“Around 600, right?” No, that’s the number of Virginia Range mustangs the PZP zealots got rid of in 2021.
How many years would you have to go back to count that many collisions?
If you get rid of them with helicopters, bullets or sterilization, that’s bad. But if you get rid of them with clipboards and darting rifles, that’s good.
The greatest threat to wild horses, next to the public-lands ranchers and their allies in government, is not the oil companies, not the mining companies, but the so-called advocacy groups.
