They are signatories to the rancher-friendly ‘Path Forward.’ Why would they oppose the removal of 82% of the wild horses in any HMA?
This is not the time for government to target wild horse herds “that have had a more than five-year investment in a fertility control program,” according to the news release.
Last year, volunteers darted 300 mares in the HMA “with safe, proven and humane fertility control.”
Meanwhile, the management plan assigns 79% of the authorized forage to privately owned livestock—on land set aside for the horses.
These people are clueless. They are a voice for the ranchers, not the horses. Why are you still giving them money?
