The Sulphur HMA, mentioned in a column by St. George News, is overpopulated with 497 wild horses, while the government authorizes privately owned livestock equivalent to 854 horses in the same area, on top of the 250 allowed by plan.
The advocates believe that the horses are the problem but they can’t agree on the best way of getting rid of them.
Meanwhile, the ranchers operate under the cover of a media blackout, evident in the article.
The story may contain material from older columns, suggested by the reference to Deniz Bolbol of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, reffered to on these pages as the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses. No such person could be found at their staff directory.
It did, however, identify the new Virginia Range Fertility Control Program Coordinator.
