Story of Sulphur Wild Horses?

They were stolen from Spanish colonizers and in the attempt to recover them, some were lost in the fray near today’s Nevada-Utah border, according to a report by KZMU Community Radio of Moab, UT.

The BLM thinned the herd by roughly 60% earlier this year, not to protect rangeland health as indicated in the article, but to protect the public-lands ranchers.

Not mentioned in the story:

  • Livestock receive 3.4 times more forage than the horses
  • About 850 horses have been displaced from the HMA by permitted grazing
  • No foals were captured in the roundup
  • The herd is shrinking without the aid of helicopters
  • The HMA has an HMAP
