The resolution would urge the federal government—ooops, administration—to, among other things, establish management of these animals informed by independent science and the American public, and to restore a thriving ecological balance to California wild horse and burro areas and territories.
Although ‘independent science’ is suspect, the addition of ‘thriving ecological balance’ could be a big red flag.
If it means wild horses and burros living in balance with wildlife, as specified in the original statute, then fine.
If it reflects contemporary usage, where most of the resources on public lands have been diverted to privately owned livestock, then the measure is toast.
