Foal-Free Friday, Changing the Way They’re Managed Edition

An estimated 250 wild horses have been displaced from their lawful home in the Pine Nut Mountains HA by permitted grazing.

The HA has a resource management problem, not a wild horse problem, yet the advocates are going after the horses.

“We’re changing the way wild horse herds are managed, not their land.”

That means taking them off the range with the Montana Solution, not helicopters.

Consider these two scenarios:

A. Helicopter roundup

  • Initial population – 440
  • Final population – 250
  • Duration – 10 days

B. Darting program

  • Initial population – 440
  • Final population – 250
  • Duration – 10 years

Only scenario A qualifies as removal.  Scenario B ranks as protection.

“We’re protecting them from removal by getting rid of them with PZP.”

Absurdity may be a symptom of too much exposure to the pesticide.
