Cameron Ring, an Army National Guard veteran, told Cowboy State Daily in a story posted today that letting combat veterans tap into their battle skills by sneaking up on wild mares with darting rifles would help them heal, as well as keep the mustang populations at reasonable levels.
You heard that right.
Veterans suffering from PTSD can overcome the illness by targeting symbols of the values they fought to protect!
Our veterans deserve better.
Ring should study the work of Leo Kuntz, a veteran who tried to save the original wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, not get rid of them.
UPDATE: Added video about Kuntz and the Nokota horses.
