New Management Paradigm for Wild Horses

You can see it in the news release for horses returned to Sand Wash Basin: Government gets rid of most of them and the advocates make sure they never come back, leaving the ranchers as the primary—if not principal—consumer of resources in the HMA.

The rate at which the new way of thinking can spread to other wild horse areas will be limited only by the number of kool-aid drinkers that can be recruited and trained on the use of darting rifles.

  1. This was a heartbreak of no return, left me speechless with a deeply felt sadness … I will never forget this along with my long life friend my best friend, my dog of 19 yrs passed the day it was supposed to end Sept 8th which did not end it kept going… until Sunday 11… my heart is broken on multi levels.
    Thank you for trying to stop this nightmare

  2. WHEN Agencies apply the status of wild equines as a special status native and cultural RESOURCE, only then can the fatally flawed Resource Management plans be amended to provide extensive habitat options. In Mar of 2016 Karen.Miner@wildlife.ca.gov stated, “ When and if available scientific information convinces the experts that determine the checklist of native species to North America that Equus caballus should be considered as an indigenous species, they will make the change in the next revision to the list.”
    By ACHP/SHPO reticence to include animals as cultural resources, the Dept. of the Interior’ agencies ( National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, and US Fish and Wildlife) exclude necessary and imperative protection of wild horses/burros in the Resource Management planning process. https://www.achp.gov/BLM/State%20Protocols. In carrying out its responsibilities the BLM employs a professional staff of Cultural Resource Specialists to advise the BLM’s managers and to implement cultural resource policies consistent with these authorities. Staff refutes the founding documented data that established all wild horses as federal property, as an all-American historic cultural property, and, as a mandated preservation component applicable in all resource management and preservation plans. https://www.achp.gov/protecting-historic-properties.
    Sec 106, as a federally mandated process, is circumvented while major capture actions systematically deprive Americans of their protected heritage. Until wild horses are designated by law as a RESOURCE conversion and extermination will continue as an unabated consequence.
