BLM to Decimate Onaqui Herd, Advocates Say ‘Let Us Do That’

They’re opposed to helicopter roundups, as indicated in this June 18 news release by Animal Wellness Action, but won’t condemn the darting program.

True, the terms ‘humane management’ and ‘fertility control’ don’t appear in the announcement.

The problem is upstream in the management process, namely, the land-use plans that determine who gets what.

The rancher-friendly ‘Path Forward,’ which is mentioned in the announcement, will enforce resource allocations already on the books.

The darting program can only keep the scales tilted in favor of the ranchers.
