The herd on the Maryland side of the island has been all but ruined by the Montana Solution, an unstated goal of the advocates.
Now, the Park Service may be trying to save them from disappearing altogether.
That means separating them from you. You are the problem, not the bureaucrats and not the advocates.
Park officials announced a series of initiatives this week aimed at reducing or eliminating human interaction, according to a story by the Maryland Coast Dispatch.
As such, the animals will be moved from new “red zones,” formerly known as visitor areas, to prevent undesirable interactions from occurring.
An announcement describing the changes has not appeared on the Assateague news page as of this morning.
