The BLM retiree hired by the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses said in a video included with the story last week by KLAS News that they are darting between 1,200 and 1,400 mares every year.
They are targeting every one of them—whether they need it or not—as suspected in the previous post, and the number of horses treated over the past two years is well in excess of the 2,000 stated in the article.
With the birth rate approaching zero, the only thing missing is a strategy to increase the death rate.
The long-term goal is not to eradicate these mustangs but to convince the bureaucrats that the technique is viable in other areas.
Almost certainly they are watching closely, and may be most surprised by the lack of public outcry.
