As the publicity and propaganda surrounding the Onaqui roundup escalate, it’s time to state the obvious:
1. The greatest threat to America’s wild horses is public-lands ranching.
2. The advocates, with their darting programs, are #2.
3. The impact of drilling and mining, compared to #1 and #2, is negligible.
The advocates are getting rid of more wild horses than drillers, miners, loggers, hikers, campers, motorists, shooters and predators ever could.
