Here are some of the highlights:
- No foals have been reported five days into the roundup
- The herd is getting smaller, without the aid of helicopters
- The death rate is probably increasing, as explained here
- PZP and GonaCon will stabilize the birth rate, which appears to be zero
- Livestock receive 77.4% of the authorized forage, neglecting wildlife
- Around 850 horses have been displaced from the HMA by permitted grazing
- The HMA has a herd management area plan (HMAP)
The advocates are pleased with these results. The herd is well on its way to extinction, with benefits accruing to the public-lands ranchers.
This is what you’re supporting when you give them money.
