Sun Rising or Setting on Virginia Range Mustangs?

No youngsters in these trailcam photos, thanks to the advocates.

The stocking rate on the Virginia Range was ten wild horses per thousand acres before they got involved, contradicting the government’s claim that western rangelands can only support one wild horse per thousand acres.

Now, they’re destroying the evidence.

Bureaucrats at the Nevada Department of Agriculture say the herd size, initially around 3,000, should be 300, ideally, and no more than 600, which works out to a stocking rate of one to two wild horses per thousand acres.

On BLM lands, which cover most of the state, AMLs and stocking rates are limited so areas set aside for wild horses can be filled with privately owned livestock, contrary to the provisions of the original statute.
