  1. Suggest that your Congressmen include “protected” wild equids as a RESOURCE to amend fatally flawed Resource Management plans. Wild Equids by operation of law are a special status native American species (RESOURCE) under ESA criteria. Wild equids are also a historic cultural Resource under Sec 106 of the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act criteria. As a Resource, they and sufficient habitat must be included in Resource Management Plans, a NEPA requisite. These conditions are in addition to and supersede some of the 1971 Free-Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act stipulations which are noncompliant with NEPA.

    “The multiple use concept does not trump the WFRHBA protections for wild horses. In fact, the statute makes clear that the protections under WFRHBA take precedence. FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. § 1732 (a) Yet, despite this, BLM has issued a regulation that provides “[w]ild horses and burros shall be considered comparably with other RESOURCE values in the formulation of land use plans.” 43 C.F.R. §4700.0-6(b).
