Oil Springs Fire Shows Impact of Oil and Gas Industry

Refer to this photo of the Dragon Trail gas plant taken by fire crews on June 28.

The burned area included lands in the West Douglas HA.

The facility’s footprint is probably less than five acres, enough to displace 1/200th of a wild horse at typical stocking rates.

If the area is subject to permitted grazing, how many wild horses have been displaced by those operations?  Dozens?  Hundreds?

Suppose it’s 50.  The impact of grazing on wild horses would be 10,000 times greater than the gas plant.

Yet the advocates would have you believe that drilling and mining are the greatest threats to America’s wild horses.

Undeniable Truth #3.
