    Bureau of Land Management (BLM) did not have the inherent authority, within plain meaning of its management authority under Wild Horse Act, to remove entire herd of wild free-roaming horses that had not been determined to be “excess animals” and to place the horses in private adoption or long-term care, even though other wild horses would continue to remain in a nearby area within same geographic unit; upon removal, the removed herd would forever cease to be “wild” contrary to Congress’s intent to protect the horses from capture, management activities provided by the Act did not include any reference to the removal of non-excess animals, there was no detailed statutory procedure for removing non-excess animals, and Congress intended to eliminate any discretion to destroy non-excess animals when it repealed original provision of act providing that power and replaced it with provision speaking only to BLM’s authority to remove and destroy excess animals. Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, § 3(a), (b)(1), (b)(2)(A-C), 16 U.S.C.A. § 1333(a), (b)(1), (b)(2)(A-C).
