Yep, the horses are being hit by cars because there are too many of them, according to this Q&A by the Reno Gazette Journal.
The Nevada Department of Agriculture and the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses agree that the Virginia Range can only support 300 to 600 horses, even though it’s been carrying around 3,000 for several years.
It’s an outlier that needs to be brought in line with the anti-horse narrative of the federal government. (That’s one wild horse per thousand acres for those of you in Rio Linda.)
Sad as it is, the loss last week of two wild horses was almost nothing compared to what the advocates are doing to the herd.
Why are you still giving them money?
