A report posted yesterday by the Las Vegas Review-Journal says lawmakers want the BLM to replace helicopters with wranglers and spend more money on fertility control to manage (i.e., inhibit) population growth.
The proposal does not address the cause of roundups: Resource management plans that put ranching interests far above those of the horses.
It’s a stupid idea, prompted, at least in part, by the advocates.
If legislators want to help America’s wild horses, let them unwind all of the changes to the WHB Act and restore it to its original form.
