Rationale for Darting Program at Twin Peaks HMA?

Over 2,200 wild horses have been bumped out by privately owned livestock, as noted yesterday, and you want to get rid of more?  Whose side are you on?

Actually, the HMA is one of the milder cases of resource mismanagement, with only 73% of the forage assigned to cattle and sheep.

If you want to see just how bad it can get, look at the numbers for Little Colorado HMA in Wyoming.

With 45,000 AUMs per year assigned to privately owned livestock, 3,750 wild horses have been displaced from that area.

These two HMAs account for more than 10% of the horses in off-range holding.

Put the darting rifles away and instead of doing something to these icons, do something for them.
